Tariffs are a double edged sword. The USA exports goods also. We could find ourselves subject to retaliatory tariffs in return. There are other ways to be competitive. If we are pricing ourselves out of the market, then we need to become more efficient. Unfortunately one way some companies do this is to reduce wages, which is something no wage earner wants to happen.
