Seattle Times editorial Sunday, September 3, 2006

Editorial: The Seattle Round of Korea trade talks

The editorial ends with:

Organized labor plans a protest at Westlake Center at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday. We recall the AFL-CIO's anti-WTO march of 1999, which was peaceful and law-abiding, and expect the same.

Though labor should be heard, we believe it is generally mistaken about these agreements. Freer trade begets efficiency — and efficiency benefits most of labor most of the time.
