AAFA Welcomes Trade Legislation That Supports US Workers
"The U.S. Job Creation and Manufacturing Competitiveness Act of 2013 not only helps U.S. apparel and footwear manufacturers, it also benefits more than four million U.S. apparel and footwear industry workers," said AAFA President and CEO Kevin M. Burke. "This bill will provide U.S. manufacturers with access to critical inputs to remain competitive in the global market while also suspending or reducing duties on over a dozen types of footwear no longer made in the United States. I look forward to working with Chairman Camp and Ranking Member Levin on this important legislation."
