WASHINGTON DC - The US fashion industry has cautiously welcomed a new bill which aims to protect the wages of garment workers by outlawing piece-rate pay and also encourage the fashion industry to move production back to the country.

The Fashion Accountability and Building Real Institutional Change (FABRIC) Act would also make fashion brands and retailers jointly liable - with their suppliers - for value chain wage violations.

In a joint statement, the American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) and Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) welcomed the reshoring incentives but opposed the proposals to make companies responsible for workers' pay in their supply chains.
