Senator Kirsten Gillibrand to Introduce First Federal Fashion Bill

As legislators in states like California and New York work to pass laws that hold fashion brands accountable for their labor practices, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (NY-D) has her sights set on the federal level.

On May 12, Sen. Gillibrand will bring the Fashioning Accountability and Building Real Institutional Change Act — FABRIC Act for short — to the Senate, a first-of-its-kind federal bill that, as Alyssa Hardy explains in voguewould incentivize fashion companies to bring manufacturing back to the US and improve the working conditions of their stateside facilities, and would penalize those who are found paying their workers less than the federal minimum hourly wage.
