Sleeping-Bag Maker questions Obama on free trade policy

Aug '10
Harry Kazazian, a sleeping-bag manufacturer from Alabama remarked that, President Barack Obama should keep his promise to assist small establishments, by exempting them from his instantaneous drive for freer trade.

Kazazian said, if US takes back the exemption allowing free import of sleeping bags from Bangladesh without charging the 9 percent tariff, his company, Exxel Outdoors Inc., would further add 50 jobs at its Haleyville factory, based in northern Alabama.

As Obama government, in an earlier verdict rejected his proposal, Exxel is now looking forward for assistance from the Congress, before which the legislation to capsize the verdict was proposed. Kazazian here, speaking in the capacity of an administrator said that, he was mystified by the reason that, why a domestic company is made to suffer for an external one?

Obama, and his trade representative Ron Kirk, in a drive to lift the economy, generate employment and develop support for mired trade deals overseas, have undertaken to hike the exports from US to two fold.

Exxel's moaning is a reflection of how sub-standard imports flowing from the countries with cheap labour are distressing a constituency that Obama pledges to root for, thus developing resistance to his free-trade urgings.
