Ajamu Baraka on Free Trade
The terrible reality facing increasing numbers of African Americans is that as the U.S. continues to shift to a low-skilled, low-wage economy, the labor force is also contracting, with the result being that large numbers of African American workers and the poor are destined to not be able to secure full time employment during their entire lives!
If concluded, the TPP will continue the process of concentrating economic power in the hands of US-based transnational corporations & financial institutions. And while the 1% who have no allegiance to any national territory or state will grow richer, the agreement will pit workers in the US-- especially Black and Brown workers--into cut-throat competition with exploited workers, this time in Asia, who will be paid slave wages to produce for the US and European markets--this agreement producing increased exports from the US is a blatant lie.
