NAFTA Threatens Jobs: Ours and Theirs

The author of the Opinion page article, ``NAFTA: A Bargain For US and Mexico,'' Sept. 13, is obviously in favor of NAFTA. But in the first paragraph he states that ``Without it, there will be no big pressure on Mexican entrepreneurs to quickly raise workers' salaries.'' Then in third paragraph he says, regarding NAFTA, ``Without these new rules, when it comes to enticing industry, it would not be possible to obtain the advantages of low wages.'' Come now, run that by me again. John R. Bacon, Bethlehem, Pa.
