You Can Eat Your Cake and Have It, Too
Many critics argue that trade agreements the United States enters into should demand more worker rights among the trading partners. Ideally, such worker rights should benefit the citizens of the trading partner and also U.S. trading companies, which would then compete on a more level playing field.

In a time when there are many trade imbalances in the world, demanding worker rights may well lead to more balanced trade.
