    If you build it into the trade agreements, then the same enforcement mechanism in use now would enforce it.

    The proposal on the table is for Congress to give the President two years to negotiate this into our current trade agreements. If the other countries involved don't agree, we would pull out and institute a tariff sufficient to recover the wage differential. But they would, of course, agree, because the U.S. is the biggest market in the world. They cannot afford to be locked out of that market.
