Garment workers in Los Angeles marched through the streets of the city’s garment district on Saturday, November 25, to call for a boycott of 13 major clothing retailers this holiday season. Organizers chose the day after Black Friday, which they have dubbed “Anti-Sweatshop Saturday,” to announce the boycott. Their goal is to bring attention to wage theft and other documented labor violations at garment factories in L.A.
