Free Trade vs. Fair Trade
American politicians have been entering into terrible "free trade" agreements since the late 1970's. These trade agreements allow corporations to increase their profitabilty by producing goods in countries with almost non-existent regulations and cheap labor.
While this may help corporations increase their stock prices, it completely decimates the average American worker; because all the good paying manufacturing jobs continue to disappear from America.
Solution: Only allow "fair trade" agreements that benefit both the corporations as well as the average American worker.
