As Obama is working overtime to convince Congress to pass The Trans Pacific Trade Agreement it is important for everyone to understand what Free Trade Means.
Luckily we live in an age where everyone has a video camera. That means you don't have to just read about the plant closings because now you can watch the actual announcements for yourself. Enjoy the Obama recovery.
One day the factory is in the United States. The next day it is in Mexico.
The American employees head to the unemployment line. The executives head to the back room to count all the money. Slave laborers in Mexico take over the work. Wages get driven down. The environment gets polluted. The workers lose. The United States loses. The top 1% get richer.
That is Free trade. Obama loves it. Clinton loves it. CEO's love it. Corporations love it. It is a giant success story for a tiny minority of our country at the expense of everything else.
