    to workers in the 3rd World, but my goodness, there is no reason we should allow the import of food, goods and services into our nation that do not at least meet our own worker safety and environmental protection laws and regulations.

    To deny imports that do not meet our own standards will not level the playing field, but it certainly will tilt it back some, benefiting not only agricultural and manufacturing workers abroad, but those here at home.
