Workers in the United States can and do benefit from international trade agreements. The Trans-Pacific Partnership would provide American workers with more markets for their goods to be exported to. Furthermore, American workers would higher wages from greater demand for their products. Strapping the TPP is bad for both American companies and American workers.
Yes, workers in the United States can benefit from exiting international trade deals, because these trade deals often just resulted in U.S. jobs moving overseas. These deals always gave the upper hand to these other countries because they were supposedly worse off. The new policy protects jobs and forwards interests of average Americans.
Trans-pacific trade: the trade agreements are partnerships between nations that agree to drop barriers to trade, this creates jobs for citizens of those nations and allows them to get goods and services a cheaper prices. This means when we pull out down, companies will have to cut down production and automatically means reducing the number of workers.
Opting the US out of international trade deals does not necessarily guarantee workers from the United States an abundance of jobs. In fact, breaking or reestablishing trade deal agreements may cause an elevations in prices on foreign goods as well as a drop in demand for products manufactured in the US from foreign countries. This can cause a shortage in homegrown jobs which can directly impact domestic labor in a negative way.
