Abstract

This journal article is a primer of the new labor legislation. It catalogs the standards set out in each agreement and any new pre- or post-FTA labor legislation initiated by U.S. trading partner countries. The article cites evidence for progress towards the rights of the labor force, new mechanisms for dialogue, and an emerging greater transparency in the enforcement of labor law worldwide.
