USMCA replaced NAFTA, is the Model for All Future Trade Agreements

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – The United States–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA) has gone into effect, replacing the outdated North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).
 
“President Donald Donald Trump was elected in part on his promise to change the direction of U.S. trade policy so it would put America first. He has kept that promise with new trade agreements and tough enforcement actions that break down foreign trade barriers, protect America’s competitive edge and stop the outsourcing of U.S. jobs,” U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer writes in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

NAFTA is no more

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – For over 25 years, Republicans and Democrats alike griped about the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Because of its weak, voluntary labor and environmental “rules,” NAFTA cost America millions of jobs and devastated working-class communities.
 
President Trump was one of NAFTA’s earliest critics as far back as the 1990s. Like former President Barack Obama, candidate Donald Trump promised to renegotiate NAFTA if he was elected. Unlike President Obama, Donald Trump kept that promise after taking office.

Lamar Alexander says Senate Labor Committee Approves Trade Agreement to Create Even More Good-Paying Jobs

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – On Wednesday, January 15th, 2020 Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after the Senate labor committee voted to approve the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement Act (USMCA), which includes several labor provisions:

“Over 40 years ago, Tennessee hardly had any auto jobs. When the North American Free Trade Agreement – NAFTA – was adopted in 1994, Tennessee had about 51,000 auto jobs. Today there are nearly three times as many. More than 140,000 Tennesseans – one third of our state’s manufacturing jobs – work in the automotive industry at plants and suppliers in 88 of our 95 counties,” stated Senator Alexander.
