article A new bill from Republican leadership would make the United States a “labor force” that is a member of the world community and not a competitor.
The bill would also allow for the importation of foreign workers to make up the loss of American jobs and the repatriation of manufacturing jobs from abroad.
“The American Manufacturing Association has repeatedly called on the Trump Administration to support the TPP and to immediately halt all trade wars that are detrimental to American workers and our economy,” said Bill Lazonick, president of the American Federation of Labor.
It also calls for the president to issue a trade embargo on all TPP countries and to negotiate bilateral trade deals with countries that are not currently in the TPP.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday that the legislation would be considered by the Senate this week.
Trump has repeatedly questioned the accuracy of the TPP, which was signed in 1994 and has not been ratified by the U.S. Senate since 1999.
On Tuesday, Trump said the bill was being negotiated in secret and was not a “legislation” for the U: “We’re talking about a trade agreement that we’re not even talking about yet.
We’re talking a trade deal that is being negotiated by secret.
We have no idea what’s going on, we have no clue what’s happening with the other countries.
So, they’re just trying to get the deal.
We are not even negotiating.
They have no control over it.”
Senate Democrats have been calling for Trump to withdraw from the TPP after it was signed into law in the name of trade, but Republicans have blocked their efforts.
A draft version of the legislation from Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi would require all foreign corporations that import American workers to submit to “a strict set of standards that will ensure that the jobs they hire will be paid fairly and will not be exploited.”
The TPP has been called “one of the most disastrous agreements ever” by the Center for American Progress, and the bill is now awaiting a vote in the Senate.
Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders said that while he supports the bill, he is opposed to it because it does not go far enough in protecting American workers.
If passed, the bill would require any foreign corporation that imports American workers, including the Chinese, to have “a transparent process for reviewing the foreign labor practices of its foreign competitors.”
