Key Stats

Additional research published by the NAM in 2021 found that repealing tax reform would threaten:

  • 1 million jobs lost over two years
  • 600,000 jobs lost each year on average over the next decade
  • $117 billion lost in gross domestic product (GDP) in the first two years

What’s at Stake

The tax reforms passed in 2017 were rocket fuel for manufacturers in the U.S., helping to drive historic numbers of new hires, rising wages, strong capital investment and the best production in years. Manufacturers have been able to keep our promises to invest in our communities, support families, grow the economy, create more secure jobs, increase wages and make manufacturing in the U.S. more competitive. Just scroll down for examples!

But Congress is considering raising taxes on manufacturers and small businesses – an increase that would cost the United States 1 million jobs over two years and stop America’s recovery in its tracks. This threat is serious.

Fast Facts

According to a recent survey of manufacturers, if Congress approves these changes, the negative consequences would include:

  • Slowed Job Growth. 91% of manufacturers say they will have trouble creating jobs and expanding.
  • Decreased Pay Raises. 90% of manufacturers say they will have trouble raising wages.
