Wyden finds more KORUS FTA resistance in Southern Oregon
21 Jan 2011 09:06 GMT
Oregon Senator Ron Wyden met more resistance to the Korean Free Trade Agreement when he held his Town Hall in Medford, Oregon on 1/19/11. Unionists Ivend Holen (IBEW steward, retired) and Ralph Browning (AFSCME President Medford employees) asked pointed questions at Wydens's Medford Town Hall. Their points were largely missed by mainstream media coverage so we are pleased to present their remarks here on Rogue Indy.--rogue imc volunteer

Wyden got his facts wrong when he stated that longshoremen favor the KORUS Free Trade Agreement.
