NEW REPORT: U.S. Trade Deficit with China Costing $37 Billion in Lost Wages Annually
A new study by the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) finds that a growing trade deficit with China has cost the U.S. billions of dollars in lost wages. In 2011 alone, unbalanced trade with the People’s Republic resulted in lost U.S. wages of $37.0 billion.
The EPI study cites 2.7 million U.S. jobs lost between 2001 and 2011 due to the trade gap with China, and over 2.1 million of those jobs were in the manufacturing sector. Of particular concern is that, even when the 2.7 million displaced workers were re-employed in non-traded industries, average wage losses totaled $13,504 per worker/year. For all displaced workers, net wage losses also totaled $37.0 billion per year.
According to the study, workers with a high school degree or less and ethnic minorities were particularly hard-hit by growing trade deficits with China. Minorities, in particular, suffered large trade-related wage losses of $10,485 per worker in 2011, with net wage losses totaling $10.1 billion per year. In total, growing China trade deficits displaced 958,800 jobs for minority workers, a disproportionately large share (35 percent) of all jobs displaced.
