Did Trump Screw Over Workers in the Booming U.S. Solar Industry?
Last week, Donald Trump’s administration imposed a steep 30% tariff on imported solar cells and panels, saying the move showed the United States would create more jobs in the country.
For The Real News, I discussed Trump’s solar panels tariff with Dan Whitten, the Vice-President of Communications with the Solar Energy Industries Association.
According to Mr. Whitten, not only will Trump’s solar panels tariff fail to create jobs, it will actually destroy about 23,000 jobs in the U.S. solar energy industry.
