The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Would Promote Off-Shoring of American Jobs
Nearly five million American manufacturing jobs – one out of every four – have been lost since implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the World Trade Organization (WTO). Since NAFTA, over 60,000 American manufacturing facilities have closed. The TPP would replicate and expand on the NAFTA model.
A leaked text revealed that TPP is slated to include the extreme foreign investor privileges that help corporations offshore more U.S. jobs to low-wage countries. These NAFTA-style terms provide special benefits to firms that relocate abroad and eliminate many of the usual risks that make firms think twice about moving to low-wage countries.
Under the NAFTA model, U.S. manufacturing imports have soared while growth of U.S. manufacturing exports has slowed.
TPP includes Vietnam, a new favorite for corporations’ job offshoring, because
wages there are even lower than China.
Already, the growth of the U.S. trade deficit with China, since China entered the WTO in 2001, has had a devastating effect on U.S. workers and the U.S. economy. Between 2001 and 2011, 2.7 million U.S. jobs were lost or displaced.
Devastation of U.S. manufacturing drives down wages, erodes the tax base and heightens inequality. Despite major gains in American worker productivity, real median wages hover at 1979 levels. Government data shows that two out of every five displaced manufacturing workers who were rehired in 2012 experienced wage reductions of more than 20 percent. With the loss of manufacturing, tax revenue that could have funded social services or local infrastructure projects has declined, while displaced workers have turned to ever-shrinking welfare programs. This has resulted in the virtual collapse of some local governments in areas hardest hit. (source)
The powers that shouldn’t be are trying to push this corporate coup d’etat (TPP) through sneakily.
We the public are not even privy to its contents. Doesn’t that tell you something? This piece of legislation will have grave repercussions for all the countries included in it … without YOUR knowledge. Where has democracy gone folks?
The TPP, if signed off by US Congress, will officially and legally be the end to any remnants of America as a sovereign, democratic, and free nation. It will give corporations open slather to do as they please and sue us if we don’t agree, for loss of corporate profits!
Representative Alan Grayson has a post on his facebook page about this very TPP deal. He is urging Americans to call their representatives and ask them to stop this. It’s time to excercise our first amendment rights.
(Read Here and CALL) It’s time for Americans to tell our lawmakers to stand up and say no more, hands off. No deals until it conforms to our Constitution. More importantly no deals with countries who abuse even the basics of human rights. It’s time for light to be shed on countries like Thailand, Pakistan and even China. We will be watching this NWO TPP fast track that the puppet Obama administration and globalists of the world are pushing, and will update as it becomes available. Western countries like the US are on the downhill slide economically, middle classes are disappearing, economies are crashing, and you can’t deny this. You can’t deny that our prices for goods are skyrocketing, our wages are sliding down, and our middle class is replaced with welfare and disability. It’s time to wake up. One world economy and government are just as an inch away if we do not act. Don’t take my word for it, research it, and get familiar with it, because we are heading on a fast track to total ruin.

*****URGENT:Contact your representativesand let them know you’re against the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) or fast-track bill, which essentially grants the office of the president the power to do treaty by Executive Order.*****
