State of Pennsylvania Archives: on Free Trade


Joe Sestak: Tax companies who fire US workers & import goods from China

Asked "How do you bring jobs back to Pennsylvania?", Sestak criticized the Bush administration's China policy and attacked his opponent for supporting it. "Corporations have gone overseas. My opponent voted that if a corporation shuts down its factory here in Pennsylvania; fires its employees; and then invests in a factory in China; and then cheap goods come in, often illegally subsidized by China; then no tax is given to the process of that large corporation, where jobs have gone overseas."
