It is obvious that free-trade costs lives as corporate networks vie for the economic advantage of corraling whatever is cheap and inversely responsible for larger profits. And the bottom line for American workers in response to such FTA’s is where does that leave them. Human Rights is a factor but it is a minimal one considering the deeper impact such agreements have on the US economic picture. When Levis left to Mexico, many San Antonians lost their jobs — long standing jobs to note — and their sentiment did not reflect concern for the new employees of Levis but for the lack of employment for themselves. The dynamics of the US Economy will lead to an educated workforce running the corporate entities outside our borders, and then, or maybe then will the concern for human lives become relevant to American lives. Kudos to the article for providing an early forecast for things surely to come and the situations that already exist. FTA is a foregone conclusion; when has “Big Business” ever been denied?
