Here's another article by Rabbi Shalom Schachter published in the Globe & Mail. You can find it here:

Trade’s casualties

Former Swedish prime minister Carl Bildt misses the point on globalization (Restoring Faith In Globalization, Feb. 22). It is not an issue of faith but fairness.

He relies on faith that the free market will create trickle-down benefits to all. However, while stock markets have fully recovered from the 2008 recession and have reached new heights, wages, while starting to rise again, have not recovered to prerecession levels and climate change is ever-increasing.

Average workers are not against international trade, they just want the rules for such trade to be fair. Until free-trade agreements contain protections against the race to the bottom, workers, their families and their communities will continue to oppose them.

We are not nostalgic in our pursuit of economic and environmental justice. We do look to a future where trade agreements will prevent companies from giving more rights to corporations than to workers and to communities and where the carbon footprint of trade must show a net improvement in its impact on the environment.
