International Trade and Job Loss (February 2004)

February 19, 2004

Although trade advocates argued that the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and other trade agreements would add jobs to the U.S. economy, 45,734 Ohio jobs lost between 1995 and October 2003 can be directly traced to international trade.

A new Policy Matters Ohio analysis of data from the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program and the former North American Free Trade Agreement-Trade Adjustment Assistance (NAFTA-TAA) program finds that 75 of Ohio's 88 counties experienced job loss as a result of international trade over the last 8 years.
