FASHION INDUSTRY JOINS LEGAL IMMIGRATION REFORM COALITION

Rate this Entry

From the AP:


Saks Fifth Avenue and Oscar de la Renta are among the fashion industry players who are joining Mayor Michael Bloomberg's coalition for immigration reform and calling for an easier visa process for international workers.


Bloomberg made the announcement Friday, the day after the close of the fall previews at New York Fashion Week. Brooks Brothers, Perry Ellis, Diane von Furstenberg and Malia Mills are also joining the group, which already claims as members chief executives of major corporations including Hewlett-Packard, Disney and News Corp.


The Partnership for a New American Economy pushes for a path to legal status for undocumented immigrants and wants to make it easier for companies to hire foreign students and attract overseas talent.


Next Model Management owner Faith Kates is joining the group and says photo shoots in New York are often cancelled or delayed because of visa problems.

    How cool! Exploiters of foreign labor in garment sweatshops joins a billionaire who likes having lots of cheap household labor, to try to drive down the wages of American middle and working class--at a time when unemployment is around 10% (not counting all the people who have given up looking for work).

    "not counting all the people who have given up looking for work"

    why will they look for work? first they will loot the welfare gravy train, some of which is financed through the taxes paid by the same illegal workers whom you detest and then make all kinds of excuses. I have yet to come across a single person who accepted some personal failings.

    I wonder why then they want them to leave their sweatshop and immigrate to the USA?

    "joins a billionaire who likes having lots of cheap household labor"

    Does he? I doubt you can back this up with facts.

    "to try to drive down the wages of American middle and working class--at a time when unemployment is around 10% (not counting all the people who have given up looking for work)."

    Those that are unemployed are so because of their own personal failings.

    C'mon, I worked in the fashion industry, and it does not exploit people in sweatshops. If you ever look even at a medium priced item (and hopefully have some experience sewing), you will understand that it is impossible to produce by a 12 year old in a sweatshop. The last time I have seen a badly sewn item, it was the part made by my highly paid American tailor (the lady should really stick to hemming pants only).

    FAIR, CIS and Numbers USA Vision for America as well as the vision of folks like Roy Beck and Richar Lamm....The whitest state of West Virginia....

    "Nestled within America's once-thriving coal country, 87-year-old Ed Shepard laments a prosperous era gone by, when shoppers lined the streets and government lent a helping hand. Now, here as in one-fourth of all U.S. counties, West Virginia's graying residents are slowly dying off.

    Hit by an aging population and a poor economy, a near-record number of U.S. counties are experiencing more deaths than births in their communities, a phenomenon demographers call "natural decrease.""

    Flip side of the fashion industry....may want immigrants but what kind of immigrants do they want?

    I dont think FAIR and CIS will oppose the fashion industry if they get the "right" kind of immigrants. They obviously have not opposed it in Hollywood!
