U.S. Chamber of Commerce rejects Trump call on business with China
(Reuters) - The U.S. Chamber of Commerce rebuffed President Donald Trump's call Friday that U.S. businesses begin immediately looking for alternatives for operations in China after China said it was imposing new retaliatory tariffs.
"While we share the president’s frustration, we believe that continued, constructive engagement is the right way forward," said Myron Brilliant, executive vice president and head of international Affairs, U.S. Chamber of Commerce in a statement, urging both sides to quickly reach a trade deal. "Time is of the essence. We do not want to see a further deterioration of US-China relations."
A Japanese immigration scheme has come under fire for widespread reports of the exploitation of workers. The BBC spoke to migrant workers who claim they were overworked and underpaid and found some were making clothes for big, international brands. And as the BBC's Population Reporter Stephanie Hegarty found, workers in other industries have reported abuses such as unsafe working environments and bullying.
