Some good news on the trade front

The Obama administration says it will investigate the United Steelworkers' complaint about China illegally subsidizing green technology.

The Teamsters are quite pleased.

Here's what Hoffa had to say:

"President Obama is fighting for America's jobs today and America's jobs tomorrow. Green technology is vital to our economic future. We cannot allow China to get ahead of us by cheating."

The steelworkers were pretty happy about it too. Their president, Leo Gerard, said "America is not going to stand by while our jobs get outsourced."
