"NAFTA and other free trade agreements, touted as a means for the world’s poor to lift themselves from poverty, have had the opposite effect, according to a recent study by Washington’s Economic Policy Institute. EPI found that the income of the world’s 400 million poorest people, which was 79 cents a day in 1990, decreased to 78 cents a day in 1999."

makes afl-cio politics a little closer to irrelevant, without a serious change. the challenge is to inform and guide a strong direction for ethics,work and social responsibility. we have at our hand all the tools and will we need. we lack organization.
we can change the world, if we will.
