AFL-CIO says China's trade policies hurt U.S. jobs The AFL-CIO, which sees Chinese trade practices as a threat to American jobs, on Thursday filed a petition in Washington, D.C., asking President Bush to impose trade sanctions against China.There are plenty of things that hurt US jobs. But, free trade is the way to go for prosperity.
I think that the child labor mention is grossly overblown. In China, each family is only allowed to have ONE child, a son or a daughter. The nation is filled with single child families. Each kid has a lot of attention from mom, dad and often four grandparents. Sure, the kids are working, but they are working at music, art, dance, sports, studies, and ENGLISH lessons.
That's what we found.
Perhaps the undercut of US prices has something to do with the gross rules and regulations that we put on our businesses.
There is plenty to do in this world. Building walls between nations and people in terms of hurting the markets and free trade among the lawful is not the focus I'd want to advance.
