How many jobs were lost in your state due to dumb trade policy?


The Economic Policy Institute has created an excellent report with interactive maps to show the job loss from the US trade deficit at the state and congressional district levels.

The first map below shows the number of jobs lost per congressional district due to the trade deficit.  The second map shows the percentage of jobs lost in each state in relation to total employment.

  • No wonder we cannot gain any traction in Washington today. The map shows that there are only about 10 or so states that are highly effected by lop sided trade policies stacked against manufacturing. I’m sure that if we allowed H1B workers to come and displace government or health care workers nation wide, that would easily be another story all together…Remember that if Trump or Sanders do not win then the oligarchs have won the election and nothing will change. It will only get worse…
