Workers' Rights and Jobs

"Flawed trade policies cost American jobs, put downward pressure on U.S. wages and working conditions, erode the ability of governments to protect public health and the environment and have contributed to political and economic instability and growing inequality in the rest of the world. It is not sufficient simply to list workers rights and environmental protections among the negotiating objectives. Workers rights have been among our negotiating objectives for more than 25 years, with very little progress being made."
