SEN. DORGAN: Well, thank you for joining us. I'm joined by my colleague Senator Sherrod Brown and Senator Lindsey Graham to talk about the introduction of a piece of legislation to stop sweatshop abuses with respect to labor that produces products that are sold in the United States.
The bill that we will introduce is a bipartisan piece of legislation. It will be called the Decent Working Conditions and Fair Competition Act. Let me describe the philosophy here. As you know, we have a lot of tension on the issue of trade. We have the largest trade deficit in the history of this country. I think all three of us agree on a bipartisan basis that our trade agreements have been unfair to our country. We need to negotiate fair-trade agreements that stand up for the interests of American workers, that stand up for our economic interests.
