LOS ANGELES — One of the city’s busiest intersections is now ringside for the boxing match between Sweatshop Watch and Forever 21.
On Friday afternoon, Sweatshop Watch, a labor coalition, delivered the latest blow by unveiling a 45-foot billboard claiming the junior retailer uses sweatshops to produce its clothes. The billboard shows a crewneck shirt collar bearing the label, "Forever 21 Sweatshop Made."
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
