As legislators in states like California and New York work to go legal guidelines that maintain trend manufacturers accountable for his or her labor practices, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (NY-D) has her sights set on the federal stage. 

On Might 12, Sen. Gillibrand will convey the Fashioning Accountability and Constructing Actual Institutional Change Act — FABRIC Act for brief — to the Senate, a first-of-its-kind federal invoice that, as Alyssa Hardy explains in Vogue, would incentivize trend firms to convey manufacturing again to the U.S. and enhance the working situations of their stateside amenities, and would penalize those that are discovered paying their employees lower than the federal minimal hourly wage.
