Should the U.S. raise tariffs to protect American businesses?

  • No responses have been submitted.
  • Tariffs hurt consumers and create injustice.

    Is it really right that minimum wage laborers pay artificially high prices on goods to protect workers that are often receiving much higher pay than minimum wage? Tariffs do protect certain segments of American businesses, no doubt, but this comes at the expense of all consumers whether they benefit from this brand of protectionism or not. As much as many people and businesses despised NAFTA, the end result was more jobs, not less. So, who is representing the unemployed person that could be employed if tariffs were removed?
