NAFTA Continues To Haunt The American Worker Today
29 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The pilot episode of TV Nation starts with the discussion of NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) as it travels to Mexico to show how big companies like GM and Converse takes advantage of cheaper labor abroad to maximize profits.In addition to that,it also presents the exploration of why it is difficult to acquire a cab in New York at rush hour that maybe due to covert discrimination.Also,it discusses other issues like the Russian missiles pointed at Flint,Michigan;the prison built in Appleton Minnesota; and leakage of toxic waste at Love Canal.

The first episode was definitely a good show to watch.When NAFTA was presented,it will definitely provide the viewer a glimpse of what is to come in a few years when millions of Americans will lose their jobs due to outsourcing and offshoring and how companies profit rise to astronomical heights to the detriment of the American worker.It was good to look back on this issue alone and how the problem has gone overboard that past two administrations have done so little to alleviate the effects of it to the economy and to the country in general.While the other issues in it seem dated after more than 20 years,the feature on NAFTA will continue to haunt us today and for many years to come.
