Richard Trumka on the Trade Debate

Richard Trumka, the president of the AFL-CIO, will speak on the current trade debate. He will lay out the principles that should underlie trade policies that would reduce inequality and support rising wages in the U.S. and worldwide, and will discuss why recent proposals for fast tracking the TransPacific Partnership (TTP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) will likely contribute to worsening inequality and job loss.
