Does Trade Reduce Wages of U.S. Workers?

Description:

This report examines in some detail the hypothesis that trade is
undermining the economic status of the American worker. Two
questions are addressed: one, Has trade tended to reduce the
average level of wages? and, two, Has trade increased the
inequality of wages? The general conclusion reached is that poor
wage performance is largely a problem of the domestic economy,
that would have occurred with or without trade.
