We have free trade agreements with a myriad of countries whose people cannot afford to buy finished goods from us. While the benefits to American corporations are obvious (cheaper labor, not paying workers benefits, removal of tariffson importing finished goods, etc..), this does nothing for workers in THIS country. It appears to me that such agreements benefit everybody BUT Americans. NAFTA's impact on the American textile industry being a perfect example.

What goods are we supposed to be exporting to nations with poverty-stricken households? Who is kidding who here?

Perot was right about the "massive sucking sound" of jobs being lost/exported as a result of that legislation.
