Are American Airlines’ uniforms making employees sick?


Many American Airlines workers say new uniforms are making them sick and they want the company to do more to help.

More than 3,000 flight attendants and about 200 pilots have filed reports complaining that their uniforms have caused rashes, hives and breathing problems.

From workers at the ticket counter to flight crews in the cockpit, 70,000 American Airlines employees donned their new uniforms last September. The complaints flooded in soon after.
