I’m a Boeing Machinist.
President Obama and Senate Democrats and Republicans, by approving fast-track legislation – a critical step towards passage of the entire Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) – just stabbed us all in the back.
Millions of people spoke loud and clear – No to TPP, No to Fast Track! Yet the Democrats and Republicans just gave President Obama the ability to continue negotiating in secret the largest trade deal in world history! We need to send a clear message to the pro-corporate politicians that there is a political price to pay when they betray our interests.

Kshama led the way in Seattle, spearheading the successful fight for $15 an hour minimum wage and passing a Seattle City Council resolution against TPP despite fierce opposition from the Chamber of Commerce and The Seattle Times.
