Stop Sweatshops, Nukes and the Korea FTA!

Tragically, President Obama has adopted the NAFTA-style Korea trade deal negotiated by President Bush. Even though it would allow special new access here for goods containing a majority of inputs and part manufactured in North Korean sweatshops, Obama is pushing to pass the NAFTA-style deal early this spring. There is a serious loophole buried in the pact’s text. It would allow North Korea’s notorious dictatorship to obtain new flows of funding from its sweatshop exports  funding to maintain their stranglehold over the North Korean people and build up weapons programs.

Congress needs to know the public rejects job-killing trade deals and sweatshop abuses, and insists on policies that support working families in the U.S., not the dangerous North Korean dictatorship.
