FAST TRACK TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP (TPP) New trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) are being negotiated in the same failed NAFTA model. The negotiations are focused on padding corporate profits not increasing worker’s paychecks. Before any trade deal comes to a vote, the administration will ask Congress to pass “Fast Track” legislation.
Caseloads are out of control and the needs of Michiganders must be met. Workers need the right tools for the job.
