“The Trade Adjustment Assistance program has a history of success helping U.S. workers get back on their feet when their jobs are offshored. Working people are proud to have leaders like Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) and Congressman Adam Smith (D-WA), who champion this critical retraining assistance and safety net. When workers lose their jobs through no fault of their own, they need the support of this program. And we owe it to them to prevent TAA from being linked to the undemocratic Fast Track process, which paves the way for fewer jobs and lower wages.”
