Models aren't the only ones miffed at labor issues in the fashion industry. The New York Daily News is reporting that Alexander Wang has just been slapped with at $50 million law suit by an ex-employee who was forced to work 80-plus hour weeks in Wang's "Broadway sweatshop." In one instance, the employee reportedly passied out after being forced to work 25 straight hours without a break. No comment yet from the Wang camp. [NY Daily News]
