Long Island City factory accused of being sweatshop

Original source:

A clothing factory in Long Island City is being charged with operating as a sweatshop by workers.

According to the New York Daily News, workers for Great Wall Corporation have been rallying outside of the factory and allege they were fired after they complained to management about work weeks as long as 100-hours and wages below the minimum.

Some employees were allegedly forced to work more than 15 hours and locking doors until garment orders were completed.

The workers are filing a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board.

This isn’t the first time Great Wall has been accused of wage violations.
