Smash Trump’s Lie: Job Outsourcing Will Increase with New NAFTA Absent Strong Worker Rights Enforcement

Sign the Petition to the Trump administration:

Donald Trump is pretending he fixed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA.)

One of his core pledges as a candidate was to end the outsourcing of jobs and protect workers. And to end our trade deficit.

In reality, the U.S. government has certified at least 170,000 trade-related American job losses between 2017 and 2020. The overall U.S. trade deficit with the NAFTA countries jumped 88%.

Unless the new NAFTA is enforced, its labor protections are nothing more than words on paper. Until Mexican workers can fight for better wages and safer working conditions with real independent unions, NAFTA’s devastating race-to-the-bottom American outsourcing and Mexican sweatshop wages will crush workers on both sides of the border.

Petition Text:

“We the undersigned urge you to work with the Mexican government to ensure that the labor rights guaranteed in the new NAFTA translate into improvements in North American workers’ lives.

That means protecting the rights of Mexican workers to create independent unions to bargain for better wages and condition and stopping the illegal attacks by bosses and government officials on workers and their advocates, like labor lawyer Susana Prieto Terrazas, against whom all charges should be dropped.”

Sign the petition, and call out Trump’s lie!
