Many Americans have been told that international trade - and more specifically, China’s trade relationship with the United States - is bad for workers and hurts U.S. growth. What is the real picture?
It is estimated that exports to China support 1 million U.S. jobs. U.S. firms sell high value products to China, including cars, trucks, construction equipment, and semiconductors, all of which support manufacturing jobs for Americans.
Over 350,000 Chinese students studying in the U.S. means tens of thousands of U.S. jobs; Chinese tourists visiting your cities and spending at local businesses support local jobs. You can add direct investment from China - billions of dollars of investment from China also means one thing: more American jobs.
