LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – Rep. Ron Kind returned from Geneva, Switzerland where he was meeting with the World Trade Organization.
The meeting was to help put an end to the trade war as soon as possible.
Kind says the Trade War is devastating to farmers, manufacturers, and consumers. He says a level playing field in the global economy is a must.
“Three a day, dairy farmers are going out of business right now. Our manufacturers are getting hit with higher costs of their input costs and also having a harder time exporting and we consumers are paying a much higher price now because tariffs are taxes that is being passed on to the American consumer,” Rep. Ron Kind said.
The U.S. is one of 165 nations participating in the World Trade Organization.
