It’s transition time for American Apparel.
After a tumultuous last couple of years, during which the company booted its controversial CEO and emerge from bankruptcy, it’s now pondering a possible move out of Los Angeles and putting itself up for sale.
The retailer is considering a move to either North Carolina or Tennessee, according to multiple reports. That would save the company a significant amount of money. This year, 500 jobs were removed.
Minimum wage in those states hovers around $7.25. California plans to raise its minimum wage to $15 an hour within the next four years. RELATED: Find out what it REALLY takes to be a best place to work at Salesforce HQ in San Francisco.
