ㅤThe wage increases were only made possible as the iron, steel, and overall metals industry has seen a boom after President Trump enacted a 25 percent tariff on imported steel and a ten percent tariff on aluminum.

ㅤThe U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement or KORUS has long vexed U.S. auto and auto parts industry because of caps on American cars sold in Korea and other barriers to entering the market.
ㅤMr. Trump, who made fixing bad trade deals a cornerstone of his 2016 Presidential campaign, has blasted the existing trade deal with South Korea as ‘horrible.’
ㅤThe makeover of KORUS is the first major renegotiation of a trade deal in U.S. history. The official said it is also a template for how Mr. Trump will broker better deals for American business and workers.'”
