Jut said he noticed on the Winnebago County Labor Council website that they were endorsing Kohl. Jut asked how they could, because Kohl voted in favor of CAFTA.
Jut, Kohl voted against CAFTA - click here for the roll call vote from Senate.gov (I Googled 'Kohl CAFTA' to find that - it wasn't difficult).
Same Google search - here is an editorial from the Cap Times:
Credit is due U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl, D-Wis., and U.S. Rep. Ron Kind, D-La Crosse, for coming out early and aggressively against the proposed Central America Free Trade Agreement.
Here is Hohl's press release.
Kohl has heard from American workers that CAFTA's rules are a step backward from the labor conditions that exist in current trade programs with Central America. There is concern that some CAFTA countries lack adequate protections for workers' rights in their labor codes and that, even where such rights are spelled out, enforcement mechanisms are inadequate.
A retraction next week, please.
