Economic Policy Institute Report Says China Cost 3.4 Million U.S. Jobs Between 2001 and 2017. 562,500 Jobs Lost in Calif.

Washington, DC...What follows is a few paragraphs from a new report from the Economic Policy Institute. Click the logo below for full report..."The United States has a massive trade deficit with China. The growth of the U.S. trade deficit with China, which has increased by more than $100 billion since the beginning of the Great Recession, almost entirely explains why manufacturing employment has not fully recovered along with the rest of the economy. And the growing trade deficit with China isn’t just a post-recession phenomenon hitting manufacturing: it has cost the U.S. millions of jobs throughout the economy since China entered the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2001, a finding validated by numerous studies.




This report underscores the ongoing trade and jobs crisis by updating EPI’s research series on the jobs impact of the U.S.–China trade deficit. The most recent of these reports (Scott 2012; Kimball and Scott 2014; Scott 2017a) look at the effect of the U.S. trade deficit with China since China entered the WTO in 2001. Our model examines the job impacts of trade by subtracting the job opportunities lost to imports from those gained through exports. As with our previous analyses, we find that because imports from China have soared while exports to China have increased much less, the United States is both losing jobs in manufacturing (in electronics and high tech, apparel, textiles, and a range of heavier durable goods industries) and missing opportunities to add jobs in manufacturing (in exporting industries such as transportation equipment, agricultural products, computer and electronic parts, chemicals, machinery, and food and beverages).

The growing trade deficit with China since China entered the WTO affects different regions in different ways. Some regions are devastated by layoffs and factory closings while others are surviving but not growing the way they could be if new factories were opening and existing plants were hiring more workers. This slowdown in manufacturing job generation is also contributing to stagnating wages of typical workers and widening inequality."

The saddest part of this story is that we don't have that many qualified workers in Ca., hard to put a third world migrant into these jobs, and worse than that, there are so many Miilenials that are still living at home and Mommy and Daddy pay their way so they haven't even had their first job at 30+, and the rest of them are on dope, and couldn't work if they had to, but would love to have me pay for their health care, groceries, clothing and everything else! Sorry, I already raised my kids, and they all work, and don't ask for anything! What a sorry country we have turned into!

      Steve jobs was a true oligarch as he gained wealth, so much so that he moved Apple production to China to insanely increase profits, in doing so he killed manufacturing in Cupertino, good paying jobs lost as usual to maximise profits- screw workers, it's the American way.

      I know you hate Trump and just want to troll but actually look at jobs being created. For the first time in a long time high paying construction, manufacturing and trade jobs are on the rise.

      During Obama's tenure most of the jobs were of the "burger flipping" variety

Robert Reich is one of the founders of EPI. Whatever your politics, he has called most economics correctly for the last few administrations. We are losing jobs but, hey, so long as you get a promise of a tax cut right? ("Interesting" timing since Congress doesn't meet again before the election, lol.)

Complete nonsense report. The unemployment rate in the US is less than 4 %. If you don't have a job in the US it is not because of China, it is because you are too stupid or lazy to do any of the 100s of thousands of jobs available in the US. China is not responsible for stupid, lazy Americans. We did that to ourselves.

In fact, Trump has added to the problem by telling white people that their unhappiness with their lot in life is not their fault but is the fault of black and brown people, especially those who came into the country illegally and took all the good jobs picking crops and cleaning motel room.
