On Tuesday, we paused to consider what happens when the federal government takes a hands-off approach to trade enforcement: 50 middle class jobs lost in the Midwest.
Now, via The Ed Show, we can hone in a little more on what's at stake. MSNBC Host Ed Schultz recently traveled to Lorain, Ohio, and interviewed the workers whose jobs became expendable when foreign competition flooded steel pipe into the U.S. market while the Department of Commerce sat on its hands. It's a powerful story, told by the people who live it every day.
