Standing Up to China to Save Jobs.
The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) has urged the White House and Congress to save American jobs and stop China’s cheating on auto parts. Yesterday, President Obama announced a major trade enforcement action against China.
China is shaking up this Presidential race. Mitt Romney attacked President Obama for failing to cite China as a currency manipulator. Obama hit back at Romney for outsourcing jobs to China. And now, a concrete action from the White House on auto parts.
But this is about more than politics, this is about jobs. The 350,000-plus jobs we’ve lost in auto parts since 2000, and the 1.6 million jobs that are at risk.
There’s one more thing Congress should do before it adjourns: pass bipartisan legislation to stop China from cheating on currency.
