Abercrombie "banishes" girl with prosthetic arm to storeroom

Abercrombie & Fitch makes clothes in Cambodia. You can find this brand and Aeropostale, Hollister, Gap, J. Crew and H&M going for a few dollars at the Russian Market. They are smuggled out of factories. You can read how the factory workers do this and their bosses complaints here.

I love this quote by a poster on "Abercrombie and Fitch and stuff from Banana Republic also has clothes made in Cambodia, now i can dress in the style from the slavery of my people...INCREASE THE WAGES!!"

Anyway, for those of you who are Abercrombie fans, you may be interested to read on
Just in case their racism, sexism, and general awfulness hasn't been enough to turn you away from Abercrombie & Fitch after all these years, here's another glimpse of the inner workings of the horrible store....

according to Riam Dean, she was forced to work in the stockroom, as opposed to on the floor, at Abercrombie's London flagship store because her prosthetic arm didn't fit the company's attractiveness standards. You stay classy, Abercrombie!...

She is now suing the company, which, by the way, already paid 2.2 million dollars to employees who felt that that the company was unfairly forcing them to buy Abercrombie's clothes in 2003. Oh, and did I mention they paid a 40 million dollar settlement in 2004, after being accused of discriminatory employment practices? Because they did!
