Noam Chomsky on Labor & Farming


Free Trade Agreements move jobs to non-union areas

Under Reagan, the US managed to drive labor costs way below the level of our competitors (except for Britain). Thatís produced consequences not only in Mexico & the US but all across the industrial world. For example, one of the effects of the so-called free trade agreement with Canada was to stimulate a big flow of jobs from Canada to the southeast US, because thatís an essentially non-union area. Wages are lower; fewer benefits; workers can barely organize. So thatís an attack against Canadian workers
