AFL-CIO Launches TV Ads to Stop CAFTA



Source: AFL-CIO

As the House prepares to vote on the Dominican Republic-Central American Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA), the AFL-CIO launched new TV ads in key congressional districts where the House member’s vote could decide whether the trade deal is passed or stopped.

The 30-second ads, which launched July 20, remind voters that 11 years ago supporters of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the model for CAFTA, promised that deal would boost the nation’s economy. The ad shows instead how the deal “spurred corporations to close plants here and ship our jobs across the border. CAFTA…will have the same, disastrous effect, driving more of our jobs to six more low-wage countries.” The ad then urges voters to contact their member of Congress “to stand up for American jobs and vote no on CAFTA.”
