Trump Really Shouldn’t Kill NAFTA
Excerpt: NAFTA, which superseded the Canada-United States Free Trade Agreement in January 1994, has been economically beneficial to the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. If you need proof, look no further than an April 2015 Congressional Research Service paper, written by M. Angeles Villarreal and Ian F. Fergusson.

  1. NAFTA really hurt us here in North Georgia. Before NAFTA, there were hundreds of small sewing plants here. Some as small as twenty women, some as big as two hundred women per shift. I worked in one of the big ones as an AS400 main frame operator after I left the Marines and moved here. But within a year of NAFTA they were all gone. The big sewing plant I worked in is just some cement slabs with pipes sticking up out of them now.

    All those people lost their jobs and jobs have always been as hard as hen's teeth to find in North Georgia.
