World Unemployment Grows

According to the United Nations, more than 200 million people are unemployed worldwide.  Population of adults looking for work is growing faster than new jobs.  This problem could mean big problems in the near and long term U.S. job market.  Politicians from both parties are pushing a new trade deal with Asia, The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).  Many critics think this trade deal would be worse than NAFTA as a catalyst for moving U.S. jobs offshore.  If the data from the U.N. is accurate, developing nations will have more people willing to work for pennies on the hour.  Our leaders need to promote fair trade that protects American workers, not free trade that only serves the interest of investors and their bankers.
