More than 100,000 Ohio manufacturing jobs depend on exports to Canada and Mexico. So there’s much at stake in the effort to ratify the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which would modernize and improve the 25-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement. The USMCA was signed almost a year ago, but the U.S. House of Representatives has yet to hold a formal vote to ratify it.
The National Association of Manufacturers has declared Nov. 13 the USMCA Day of Action, noting there are two million U.S. manufacturing jobs at risk if the agreement is not ratified. With just a handful of days remaining in the 2019 session, let your federal representative know you support a vote on the USMCA yet this year. 11/7/2019
