I don't hear much noise from my fellow wine community members. Is everyone aware of what is going on? If not, here are some current articles to help sober you up! Everyone's livelihoods are threatened here. Please voice your concern to your local congressman. The more noise me make, the less likely it will go through. Let's permanently block this tariff now! Could impact 17,000 jobs, 2 Billion loss to our economy, millions of dollars generated from state taxes on wine sales, loss of consumer choice, cost-prohibitive pricing, and of course, a threat to free trade and our rights as citizens.
Write a letter to your congressmen and women today!
While you were all writing strongly worded letters to your congressman. This happened (Jan 14th 2020) Trade/ WTO: EU, US, and Japan agree on new ways to stregthen global rules on insustrial subsidies. ec.europa.eu/.../ip_20_43
That's a perfect example of how trade negotiations SHOULD work. Not one mention of tariffs.
