Response to puffy socks (Reply #46)

47. chortle..

 

I linked a study of the bill and some common arguments against it.
If you think the TPP is good for labor...


"By making it easier for U.S. corporations to offshore decent jobs to low-wage countries, the TPP would accelerate the "race to the bottom" spurred by other free trade agreements, such as the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), putting downward wage pressure on U.S. workers while facilitating corporate exploitation of foreign workers. TPP includes the same incentives and protections for off-shoring as NAFTA, such as special investor rights that eliminate many of the risks and costs associated with relocating jobs to low-wage countries."

Yeah, good for American jobs. Seriously the best, best trade deal ever, lots of jobs. You can't be a democrat and be for this deal, so thanks for the chortle.
