ABSTRACT
The article discusses the issues of labor standards, which are significant in the debate over the U.S. trade policy. It analysed how the arguments at the Congress are established considering that the U.S. Trade Regulation (USTR) negotiators have made into a significant factor influencing the final texts of Free Trade Agreements (FTA). It notes that there is only one submission being received under the labor chapter of FTA. Furthermore, it suggests that any debate of FTA labor chapter should respond to problems in the country.
