Statement on the Proposed Korea-US Trade Agreement

by on Dec.11, 2010, under Business, Civil Justice, Politics

GVConsulting stands with The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM), Public Citizen, and other entities in strong opposition to the NAFTA-style trade deal between the United States and Korea.

In these economic times, the United States cannot afford to perpetuate and expand the failures of policy-making as seen in the Bush-era agreement with Peru as well as those with other states under the guise of free trade. No course of action within the Korean agreement will fulfill the needs of the unemployed here at home; strengthen the manufacturing base and small businesses in the United States; raise the labor standards of the Korean state; preserve and enhance local and regional environments; and protect consumers.

Standing at the side of IAM, Public Citizen, and other partners, GVConsulting encourages every member of Congress to reject the Korean agreement outright.
