|American industry moves manufacturing jobs overseas |
as trade agreements championed by Rep. Ron Kind
(R-Wisconsin) have hollowed out the U.S. economy.
Now before congress, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)
would move entire industries overseas, as American
manufacturing jobs move into endangered-species territory.
Pictured above is a shuttered facility from La Crosse
Footwear Inc. that shipped 100s of American jobs to the
Far-East circa 2000-01. Who would want to ship away
American jobs and why?
Myron Buchholz demands an answer.
Rep. Ron Kind is to manufacturing jobs what Gov. Scott Walker is to higher education: Hostile.
Brilliant campaign video is out by Myron Buchholz for Congress (D-Eau Claire), challenging nine-term incumbent Rep. Ron Kind (D- La Crosse).
Kind is the chair of the "New Democrat" Coalition and a champion of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) 'trade' agreement now before Congress.
TPP like other trade agreements will hollow out the American economy, ship jobs and industry overseas, and drive down American wages.
TPP was negotiated in secret for years, is heavily supported by Republicans, the pharmaceutical industry, an array of corporate special interests and Wisconsin's own Ron Kind, (Wallach, Goodman; Democracy Now); (Conyers, The Nation).
Why would any politician even consider TPP? Rep. Kind has no answer.
Myron Buchholz pays homage to Bob Dylan's classic Subterranean Homesick Blues (1965) in a video asking Rep. Kind, Which side are you on, Ron?
The video features images of the homeless, shuttered factories and foreclosed homes, as Buchholz asks in a lamenting tone, Which side are you on, Ron?
