Wilkey Gives ‘Em Hell

By April 14, 2005General

NAM member Dick Wilkey — a small manufacturer, Fisher-Barton, from Wisconsin — testified today before the House Ways and Means Committee on trade with China.

“Competing against China’s low wages is tough enough”, said Wilkey, “but a deck stacked with unfair trade practices makes it practically impossible.”

He outlined the NAM trade agenda, calling for an end to currency manipulation, an end to illegal subsidies and an end to intellectual property abuse.

For those of you who don’t know Dick Wilkey, he’s no shrinking violet. He’s a great manufacturer, sells his product around the world, and is passionate about manufacturing.
