Trans Pacific Trade Deal stalled

With the labor movement coming out strong against the job killing TPP and Fast Track, hundreds mobilized with a few days notice outside the office of rookie Congresswoman Kathleen Rice (D-Garden City) last Monday.  Rice, who ran with massive union support this past NOVEMBER, made a bold move in supporting a bill which would send jobs to the Pacific Rim. More will be discussed on this issue at Tuesday's union meeting but in the meantime get some background on this specific issue at ucommblog.com.
