WASHINGTON — Trying to protect U.S. textile and apparel jobs while championing free trade may seem like a dichotomy, but that’s just the policy President Bush had adopted.
The Bush administration’s captain for navigating the political minefields in the domestic textile industry that two-sided agenda creates is Grant Aldonas, undersecretary for international trade. Finding the right balance to safely walk that path is widely seen as crucial to the GOP’s quest to hold onto its narrow majority in the House after November’s election.
