Welcome to the Alliance
The Alliance to Keep U.S. Jobs is a diverse coalition of U.S. manufacturers, companies and agricultural interests in danger of losing tens of thousands of American jobs as a result of Congress’s action to violate portions of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). In response to this violation, Mexico imposed tariffs on 90 U.S. products in March 2009, which has resulted in $2.4 billion in lost trade for American companies and workers. In August 2010, the Mexican governement revised the list of U.S. goods subject to increased tariffs to include 99 U.S. products. Mexico is the U.S.’s third largest trading partner and the harm done to these industries has put hundreds of millions of dollars in markets, capital and other investments directly at risk.
In addition, the impact on America’s small towns and main streets will have damaging consequences in an already difficult economic time. The Alliance urges the U.S. government to urgently resolve this matter before more U.S. jobs are put in jeopardy. This is not the time for America to turn its back on our workers.
