Manufacturing association leaders join forces, calling for action on currency manipulation

 Leading manufacturing association presidents came to Cleveland on Wednesday to remind Ohioans that currency manipulation and unfair trade practices continue to hurt American workers, businesses and farmers.

These leaders are calling for firm Congressional action to help level the playing field as the United States continues to negotiate the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a free-trade agreement with 11 other countries. They say more access for made-in-America goods is not nearly as big of an issue as undervalued exchange rates that boost exports for other countries and impedes exports of American products.
