I Seriously Hate American Apparel

I just wanted to drop a quick note about American Apparel and the slime that is Dov Charney.

I've become an anti-AA spokesperson because of this tool. And a few people have been throwing it back to me that AA is actually great because they pay their employees living wages and treat them fairly and blah blah blah.

OK OK! I get that. And I wish more companies were like that. So, fantastic for them ...HOWEVER, you will have to excuse me if I don't think that workers are treated all that "fairly" and wonderfully when half of them are at risk of rape, harassment, or assault. So, yeah, I'm sorry if I don't get all googly eyed at their general worker's practices.
