Agreeing to completely open trade without any controls was intended (in my opinion) originally as a way to weaken unions, and wages generally, and that continues to be the effect. Unless we move on to this battleground, we will simply be fighting more battles on their grounds, on the grounds where we are putting a stake in the ground just to keep the existing labor movement from being wiped off the map.

BTW, a hat tip goes to David Shuster for asking intelligent, non-hostile and thoughtful questions in this segment.

Here’s the link to the video on YouTube.
