End all non-immigrant guest worker visas first so that ALL Americans that want to work, can work.
As for free trade agreements, I believe these 3 simple steps will solve that problem without tariff’s, etc.
- It is ok to sell your products to other countries.
- It is ok to open up retail stores and open up manufacturing plants in other countries as long as you hire only the locals to work in those stores or plants.
- It is NOT OK to send your manufacturing to another country and then import those products back to the country whose workers you have already destroyed by sending their jobs to other countries.
Each country needs to adapt these rules to protect the workers of their country.
