Looks like Alexander Wang’s legal troubles won’t be swept under his fur hammock any time soon. After thirty workers filed a $50 million lawsuit last week accusing the designer of running an alleged sweatshop in Chinatown, another plaintiff has come forward, putting a second name to the case. Flor Duante, a 48-year-old single mother of three, says she had to work more than 90 hours a week in the windowless, 200-square-foot room and that she was terminated after filing for workers’ compensation. On Friday, Gawker took a field trip to 386 Broadway, the scene of the supposed crime, but didn’t see much, other than the company’s CFO Mark Greene, who referred them to the brand’s press rep.
