Buchzeiger’s recent editorial in Crain’s Detroit Business, “How my president’s tariffs would cripple my company,” speaks about her frustration with the current administrations trade policy and how it’s negatively affecting her company.  

She joined Stateside to discuss her article. Listen above to hear how Trump's tariffs on foreign countries are having a negative impact on American companies.
