New op-eds pose swing state challenge
Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) Executive Director Scott Paul has a challenge for President Obama and the Republican presidential contenders.
In a new series of op-eds appearing in key battleground states, Paul asked whether any of the candidates are prepared to investigate China's massive violations of trade law, which are putting 1.6 million U.S. auto parts jobs at risk.
From The Cleveland Plain Dealer, March 4:
Nearly 190,000 jobs in Ohio's auto-parts sector are at risk due to China's cheating.
From The Tennessean, March 5:
As president, they can initiate action on China’s auto-parts subsidies, open its market, and grow jobs in Tennessee. Nearly 80,000 Tennessee jobs depend on it.
From The Virginian Pilot, March 4:
Beijing has pumped $27 billion of subsidies into its auto parts sector, with an additional $10 billion planned.
From The Birmingham News, March 2:
We've seen our trade deficit in auto parts with China grow nearly 900 percent in just 10 years.
Are the candidates listening?
