Momentum Builds to Stop Fast Track Trade Deals, Thanks to You

February 13, 2014

Fast Track. It’s the tool that global corporations and the economic elites have used since the Nixon era to advance a trade agenda that helps corporate profits soar while pushing down U.S. wages, undermining labor rights and increasing inequality. The last Fast Track law expired in 2007, with good reason. Why should America’s middle class continue to be sacrificed simply to advance a model of globalization in which they have no say? That’s downright un-American. And yesterday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was the latest prominent elected official to say no to Fast Track, no to H.R. 3830/S. 1900.
