Key Stats

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

  • 1 million jobs lost over two years
  • 500,000 jobs lost each year on average over the next decade
  • $107 billion lost in gross domestic product (GDP) in the first two years

What’s Going On?

Thanks to tax reforms passed in 2017, 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 the current budget bill before Congress includes policies that aim to increase taxes for manufacturers, reversing the great progress we’ve made over the last few years.

UPDATE – Friday, Nov. 19: The Build Back Better Act — the budget bill that includes tax hikes aimed at manufacturers — has just passed the House of Representatives and is now headed to the Senate. Tax hikes within this bill could cost the United States 1 million jobs over two years and stop America’s recovery in its tracks. This threat is serious. Take action now by urging your Senators to oppose tax hikes on manufacturers!

Fast Facts

  • 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.
