Shinagawa Speaks Out Against Free Trade Agreements

Democratic candidate, Nate Shinagawa spoke at the Stand for the American Worker Rally in Olean on Saturday, just days after Dal-Tile negotiations fell through and the announcement of 174 jobs losses are set for January. Shinagawa and other local labor leaders at the rally echoed the concern over free trade agreements that are hurting the manufacturing industry of the Southern Tier. “These agreements supported by my opponent, Congressman Tom Reed, are hurting our district and sending jobs overseas,” said Shinagawa. He went on to say, “My heart goes out to the families across the district that are hurting from manufacturing job losses." Shinagawa added that he believes that given the opportunity the "Southern Tier workforce and manufacturing can out-work and out-compete anyone around the world.”
