Jobs lost to Mexico have moved to Asia
The Lisa Benson editorial cartoon in the Feb. 21 News, showing jobs being exported to Mexico, is just a few years too late. Where was Benson in 1993 when NAFTA was ratified by Congress? Maybe she should have put a picture of President Bill Clinton with a big smile on his face.
Someone should also inform Benson that all those American jobs that went to Mexico are now in China. When the Trans-Pacific Partnership takes effect, those jobs will leave China and go to Southeast Asia and the Pacific Rim nations. That is where the cheapest labor will be found.
