American Apparel in Bankruptcy

Written By Views maker on April 04, 2009 | 4/04/2009

The factory behind American Apparel's "Made in Downtown LA" slogan is in bankruptcy.

The factory is the focal point of the cotton-clad company's "Legalize LA" campaign. The company, which prides itself on manufacturing its hipster-friendly t-shirts and leggings in the U.S., is a vocal advocate for a path to legalization for California's undocumented workers. Politicians, including Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, have used the factory as a backdrop to talk about legalization.
