AFL-CIO Welcomes Commerce Department’s Examination of China’s Economy

 AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka made the following statement regarding the decision by the Department of Commerce to examine whether China meets the market economy test: 

America’s working families welcome the Department of Commerce’s examination of China’s economy. A thorough assessment is necessary to ensure American workers are competing on a level playing field. Any fair analysis of the facts will reaffirm that China’s extensive government involvement merits “nonmarket economy” treatment so that the U.S. can properly address dumped, underpriced goods and services that hurt U.S. workers and producers. This inquiry will be critical to the effectiveness of U.S. trade enforcement.
