Way to go Rose. ;) I'm thinking you're old enough, like me, to remember NAFTA's great promise too? That was both Clinton and Bush's step child.(I voted for George too, btw). I lived in Texas for 4 and a half years as a union carpenter. The labor pool down there has been driving wages down for literally generations. NAFTA is like opening your door to a vagrant and saying, what's mine is yours and what's yours is mine. What the heck did Mexico bring to the table that we American citizens could profit from? They had nothing to lose and everything to gain. (Some may ask why I used the word profit, tell me what Mexican's gain by living in the US.) Wait a while, we'll all be trying to find jobs in Mexico next.
