Los Angeles was once the epicenter of apparel manufacturing, attracting buyers from across the world to its clothing factories, sample rooms and design studios.
But over the years, cheap overseas labor lured many apparel makers to outsource to foreign competitors in far-flung places such as China and Vietnam.

The people who pushed the $15.00 minimum wage not only hurt everyone in the State but themselves as well. Forest for the Trees people!
