6. That IS our only option -- keep working for it or not
Edited on Tue May-02-06 03:47 PM by 0rganism
I'm not a fan of NAFTA, I'm just trying to find the silver lining.

We need to come to terms with the economic reality of labor exploitation, and stand with labor rights movements in other countries to stop it. When Superbig, Inc. looks around the world for cheap labor and finds out that every other country on the globe has and enforces as many labor, environmental, and civil protections as we do here, they'll see no advantage in outsourcing, and the people who would otherwise immigrate will see less advantage in doing so.

By empowering workforces around the world, we protect our own hard-won gains here at home.
