[Excerpt] A worker exchange - workers meeting with one another in each other's communities - challenges both liberal "guilt" and self-centered nationalism as motivations for local organizing around trade issues. Instead, an exchange identifies what the workers have in common: problems with employers, worries about trade's social impact, and a desire to make mutual and sustainable economic development the foundation for a fair trade program.
