Become a Friend of Manufacturing
Manufacturing is what makes America great. It supports 18.5 million high-paying jobs in the United States. Manufacturers contribute 2.17 trillion dollars to our economy each year. The average manufacturing employee earns nearly $80,000 per year, 24% more than workers in other industries. And, most manufacturers are small businesses, with deep roots in their communities.
Despite all of this, manufacturers in the United States are facing strong head winds. The highest corporate tax rate among industrialized countries; lack of free and fair trade; putting off vitally necessary improvements to our roads and bridges; and, out-of-control government regulations all conspire to make it difficult for manufacturers to compete in the global economy.
