“Free trade” has allowed unrestricted, uncontrolled access to our economy for goods made overseas at labor costs far below ours, sometimes for wages as low as $2 per hour, tariff- and duty-free.

The U.S. is rendered noncompetitive as the middle-class jobs we once depended on are sent overseas, further adding to the unemployment rate.
