The issue of Trade is important to our district and to my work in Congress.
I will continue my battle for fair trade, not just free trade. Failed trade policies have hurt America’s workers by shipping jobs overseas, undermining worker’s rights here and abroad and allowing changes to laws that protect workers, consumers, and the environment.
I will not support any agreement that does not incorporate internationally-recognized labor rights with effective enforcement mechanisms. I will not support any agreement that blocks a worker’s right to organize and bargain collectively, allows for child labor or allows for discrimination in the workplace.
