There are many things we don’t know about the Trans Pacific Partnership because our government is keeping the information behind closed doors. So far, what has been speculated to be included in the partnership is downright scary, in my opinion! Lifesaving drugs won’t be allowed to have a generic, less costly version, internet speeds will lessen and your internet provider will be able to track your every search. Other countries will be able to sue the United States for profits lost due to our stronger regulations. Paygrades will also go down to meet the standards of other countries in the partnership. Some Vietnamese workers make less than 65 cents an hour… And we complain about our $7.25?!? If you were for a McDonald’s worker making $10 an hour, this partnership would squash that.
There is no reason that this trade agreement should be hidden from the American public!!
Please go to any of the many websites that have petitions to sign against it, call your representative or even reblog this post 😉
Although we only had until January 13th to speak publically about it, there are still things you can do to help stop TPP.
