Inez Tenenbaum on Jobs

China undermines fair trade

Tenenbaum will create jobs for South Carolinians by making sure that Congress enforces trade agreements we have in place. She would get tough on countries like China that undermine fair trade. To create new jobs, Tenenbaum has proposed an immediate reduction in the corporate tax rates for American manufacturers. She would work to provide tax credits and accelerated depreciation for new investments in plants and equipment.

Put America First to protect jobs and workers

The American trend known as "outsourcing"-moving jobs and functions to foreign countries where labor is cheap and government restrictions are few-ought to alarm every South Carolinian and every American. For years, proponents of the unfettered exchange of goods and services have assured us that America stands to lose only low-wage, low-skill jobs. Yet today, America is losing jobs not just in manufacturing-hard enough for states like South Carolina, where the textile industry has supported so many families-but across the economic spectrum.

South Carolina and America are facing crucial economic times. We must continue adjusting to long-term changes in the economy of the world and the nation, but we have a moral duty not to dismiss the needs our people and our state confront today. Our government should act now to put America first.
