We will also address the current violations of workers rights that were granted under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Consumers must exercise their power and demand that America's trade policy reflect greater economic equity and fair treatment for all workers.

Fair Trade means Amnesty, Fair wages and Fair Prices.
