A bipartisan commission appointed by Congress to study U.S.-China trade relations estimates that U.S. jobs lost to other countries doubled from 2001 to 2004. In the first three months of this year, the researchers determined about 23,000 jobs nationwide went to Mexico, more than three times as many as those going to China, and six times as many as those going to India. "There is a hemorrhaging of major proportions that we need to be worried about," said Dick D'Amato, chairman of the U.S. China Economic and Security Review Commission.
