Manufacturing Group’s Ad Campaign Blames China for U.S. Job Losses

04/09/2008
The Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) has launched an ad campaign aimed at urging the major presidential candidates to hold China accountable  job losses in the United States. The first ads are airing in several major markets in Pennsylvania, where presidential primary elections will be held on April 22. In the ads, AAM says that Pennsylvania lost 78,200 jobs in all sectors between 2001 and 2006 as a result of the U.S. trade deficit with China, as opposed to 44,173 jobs lost between 1993 and 2004 as a result of the North American Free-Trade Agreement (NAFTA). "If the presidential candidates want to save Pennsylvania jobs, they should commit to fighting China's illegal trade practices such as dumping, subsidies, and currency manipulation," says Scott Paul, director of AAM. After the Pennsylvania primary, the AAM plans to continue the ads in Indiana and North Carolina, which will hold primaries on May 6.
