Manufacturing Apparel in California, or Not

A reader asks: Should California be allowed to get away with this?


By Paul Heully

Screen Printing received a letter to the editor this week that really aroused some interest. If you have similar or related experiences, please let us know about them.

My name is Paul Heully and I co-own Lightning Ridge Screen Printing Inc. in Ventura, CA. Recently I found out that the State of California, through the Department of Labor, has classified all T-shirt printers and embroiderers as Garment Manufacturers.

They started in Northern, CA, about three years ago sending agents to all the shops under the pretext of looking for labor posters and Workers’ Comp Insurance, but what they were really after was a Garment Manufacturers’ License. They fine you $100 per employee on the spot and try to force you to get a Garment Manufacturers’ License. The cost is $25 for a test, but if you really look into it once you pass the Garment Manufacturers’ License test, it is $750 to register with the State and $2,500 a year in fees.

I have been in business for 23 years and have never once manufactured anything.

I feel that this is a matter that your magazine should be interested in as it affects our industry, not just in California, but throughout the country. Should California be allowed to get away with this? It will soon spread to other states as a way to build revenue, if it hasn’t already.

I’d be interested in hearing from you on this matter.

Kanye West makes his runway shoes with Giuseppe Zanotti, but for sneakers, he’s a Nike man. (Well, with occasional pit stops at Vuitton.) The company announced today the official release date of its second sneaker with the rapper-turned-designer, the Air Yeezy II, which hits stores globally June 9. There are a wealth of minute details to puzzle over, from the “anaconda-texture leather” panels to the nods to ancient civilizations, like the hieroglyphics on the loop strap spelling out YZY and the falcon insignia on the tongue. (The Ancient Egyptian god Horus, god of the sky, war, and hunting, was commonly depicted with the head of a falcon.) And those looking to walk a mile in Kanye’s shoes will be particularly pleased. These boast a slimmed-down silhouette originally derived from tailoring the prototypes directly to West’s foot.
