We have a jobs crisis. Mainly, there aren’t nearly enough of them, and the ones that are available barely pay a living wage, if even that. There is one possible solution however, one so seemingly obvious that I’m surprised it hasn’t been openly considered by even the fringe candidates. We need to reverse course on the free trade side effect that has allowed and even encouraged American companies to ship millions of jobs overseas, circumventing the basic safety, labor protections and fair wages that American workers fought for over a century to earn. And it’s all being done for the rather distasteful purpose of increasing corporate profits.
