Had they been imposed in the 1970s, such tariffs *might* have prevented some of the dumping and thus saved a lot of jobs in the Rust Belt and elsewhere. *Might* have even set a precedent that future globalized trade that costs American jobs may be taxed in order to offset any financial advantage to moving jobs offshore to cheap labor markets.

Drumpf proposed some kind of "wage equalizing tariff" back during the campaign vis-a-vis cars made in Mexico. Might be kinda late to be setting a precedent now, though.
