It has been well documented that NAFTA has sent hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of American jobs to Mexico. Because Mexican laborers are so cheap, and “free trade” bills allow the easy movement of capital – though not labor – across borders, manufacturers naturally choose to operate in the low-wage nation. They can then sell the goods back to America for cheap, ignoring the devastation caused by so many unemployed.
