A Guild Member and Her Granddaughter Take on the TPP

It's likely you've seen it on Facebook or a union website: A photo of a small, solemn girl holding a sign that reads, "I am old enough to work in Vietnam. Stop TPP." Grace Catania, chair of the Chicago Newspaper Guild's interpreters unit, had no idea that teaching her granddaughter about the dire effects of the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership would go viral. But that's exactly what's happened since she snapped the photo over New Year's and sent it to the CWA DIstrict 4 office. She hopes it's helping to humanize a harmful trade deal that too few Americans understand.
