Los Angeles is now the country's center for apparel manufacturing, but many of its factories bear an eerie resemblance to New York's early 20th century sweatshops. "Made in L.A." follows the remarkable journey of three Latina immigrants working in L.A.'s garment factories and their struggle for self-empowerment as they wage a three-year battle to bring a major clothing retailer to the negotiating table. This intimate film offers a rare and poignant glimpse into this "other" California, where immigrants in many industries toil long hours for sub-minimum wages, fighting for an opportunity in a new country. Co-Production with ITVS. A co-presentation of Latino Public Broadcasting and P.O.V
