Fair Trade For The 21st Century

When we fight for fair trade we are fighting for our jobs, our standard of living and a sustainable economy. The President and most in Congress know the U.S. economy is way out of balance but the leaked contents of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) points mostly to more of the same. We are not interested in better symbolism around labor, environmental and consumer standards while corporate interests are on the fast track.

President Elected By National Popular Vote? AMEN

Why should CWA members care about Money in Politics? The Supreme Court declared that corporations are people and money equals speech. The wealthiest Americans and corporations benefit from unlimited money in politics and use it to make sure the Chamber of Commerce agenda is followed on Capitol Hill.
