Senator Kirsten Gillibrand to Introduce First Federal Fashion Bill

Posted on

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

On May 12, Senator Gillibrand will take the Fashioning Accountability and Building Real Institutional Change Act — the FABRIC Act for short — to the Senate, the first federal bill that, as Alyssa Hardy describes in Modewill incentivize fashion companies to bring manufacturing back to the US and improve the working conditions of their facilities in the United States, and will penalize those found to be paying their workers less than the federal minimum hourly wage.
