IAM International President Robert Martinez Jr. says Trump should take bold action to defend North American workers from China's unfair trade policies. Martinez says when Trump meets with the Chinese president the IAM hopes Trump will stand for "good jobs and simple trade justice".
Martinez says it's time to bring U.S. jobs home.
The IAM says blame for loss of U.S. manufacturing jobs lies not just with China, but with companies like Boeing who are happy to ship U.S. jobs overseas. Martinez says our politicians have been too quiet for too long on job losses from trade deals and working people have had enough lip service.
He says U.S. corporations that have sent jobs abroad need to take immediate action to bring the work home.
