Julian Castro on Free Trade

 

 


Protect American workers but take part in global economy

We live in a 21st century global economy. We need to make sure that we always protect our American workers and companies, that they benefit by whatever we do in terms of trade. But we are going to compete in a 21st century global economy, and we need to do that effectively. We're going to crack down on people who cheat. Before we enter into any kind of trade agreement, we want to make sure that we have tougher environmental standards, labor standards, and enforcement standards.
