Even though the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreements are being created in secret amongst governments and big corporations away from the public light, shoe company New Balance has exposed the type of corruption that is typical of modern free trade deals.
New Balance has come clean on how it was bribed by the U.S. government to stop its opposition to the TPP in exchange for shoe contracts with the military.
These trade deals will be a big nail in the coffin for untold numbers of manufacturing and high-tech jobs.
Free Trade doesn’t mean Fair Trade.
Free trade does mean that your livelihood and those of your family will be extinguished and sent off-shore.
