The Negative Impact on Manufacturers
Watch this video to learn why tax hikes on manufacturers are the wrong way to go:
According to a recent survey of manufacturing leaders, if Congress follows through on these changes included within reconciliation…
- Nearly 94% of manufacturers said that higher taxes would be harmful to their businesses
- 91% of manufacturers will have trouble creating jobs and expanding
- 90% of manufacturers will have trouble raising wages
According to research published by the National Association of Manufacturers, increasing the tax rate for manufacturers and small businesses would have harmful consequences, which includes the equivalent of:
- 1 million jobs lost over two years
- 500,000 jobs lost on average each year over the next decade
- $117 billion in GDP lost in first two years
