Washington, D.C. — On Tuesday, March 25, the Center for American Progress will host Richard Trumka, the president of the AFL-CIO, for a discussion on the current trade debate. In his remarks, Trumka will lay out the principles that should underlie trade policies that would reduce inequality and support raising wages in the United States and worldwide. Trumka will also discuss why recent proposals for fast-tracking the TransPacific Partnership, or TTP, and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or TTIP, will likely contribute to worsening inequality and job loss.
