WASHINGTON DC – The Fashioning Accountability and Building Real Institutional Change (FABRIC) Act, introduced earlier this year in the US, has taken another step forward in Congress and is to be discussed by the House of Representatives.

The legislation would outlaw piece-rate pay for garment workers and encourage the fashion industry to domesticate its value chain. It would also make fashion brands and retailers jointly liable - with their suppliers - for value chain wage violations.

Organisations supporting the bill have launched a public petition enabling consumers to demonstrate their backing of the act, which it’s hoped will help influence authorities in their decision-making.
