a year ago I would've agreed, but I was there through the opening (at management level nonetheless) and left less than two months later. why? putting people in charge who really are grasping at how to manage there own schedule. feeling like there is no direction for the store but not having input recognized or even considered as positive for growth. having the entry level factory position earn more than myself, 4 years of design school and in a managerial position later, and seeing that 4 years from now with the young age of all my superiors we'll all be in the same position and I'll be selling mediocre american made clothes to CU students still. That sucks. A few good people, a lot of retardo-americans that can layer their cotton garments, and a perverted owner later and you've got AA. Good company, but this ex-AAer will be be Alternative Apparel instead.

Sorry Elizabeth but this article would've been relevant in 2004 when it was, well, relevant. now it's just another has been, abuse of power story.

why a company like american apparel that, as they say, they are doing so good. why do they have to talk badly about the strategy of others? maybe american apparel is afraid of its competitors and needs to do this bad publicity about other companies production? really, i think they are mistaken
