NEW YORK — Anti-sweatshop activists were busy spreading some sarcastic holiday jeer Tuesday.
With "Jingle Bell Rock" blaring as background music, 200 protesters rallied outside Brylane’s Seventh Avenue offices to shout about alleged sweatshop abuses in factories that make merchandise for the catalog. Organized by UNITE, the event unveiled the Brylane Sweatshop Holiday Catalog 2002, a spoof on the company’s real catalog, and a fashion show featuring former Brylane factory workers wearing the clothes they helped make. Poor working conditions, abusive treatment by factory management and pay that was below minimum wage were some of their charges.
