    Default Bad trade deals cost Wisconsin good jobs

    Thanks to opinion pieces like this, the word is getting out.
    The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a NAFTA-style trade deal that would lead to the outsourcing of good, family-supporting jobs in Wisconsin by creating an uneven playing field for American workers. The TPP doesn't give Wisconsin workers a fighting chance. It was created by and for corporations and gives incentives for companies to lower wages and ship our jobs to foreign countries in a never-ending race to the bottom in terms of worker rights, wages and working conditions.

    Let's be clear: The labor movement is not opposed to trade agreements. We understand global trade is a reality in today's economy and that 95% of the world's consumers live outside the United States. What we are opposed to is bad trade agreements that lack enforceable labor standards, allow countries to manipulate their currencies and leave American workers without jobs.
    We've been hearing the same song and dance — that trade deals will make our economy stronger — since 1992. The reality is, it hasn't panned out. We aren't better off. The opposite is true. Workers have fallen further and further behind in real wages. Millions of jobs have fled offshore.

    No way! Trade deals are bad? You mean all the rainbows and sunshine they have pounded us with for 20 plus years are nothing but bean farts? The shame of it all.

    Did you read the TPP? Given Obama negotiated it, it cannot be a good one but because a left wing newspaper says it's bad doesn't make it so. Most media are left wing slugs

    Most all that support unionism and the American trades losing jobs think it's crap including a few republicans. The only reason the pro free trade republicans aren't against it is they bow down to the corporations running our country into the ground. They stand to make a fortune as the middle-class sink further into the mire. Hoist those pom pom's bean. The free traders thank you.
