August has just begun and after completing a deal on raising the debt ceiling Congress has officially left town for the next five weeks. However, our work is not finished.
After leading the economic recovery manufacturers have seen evidence over the past few weeks that the recovery is stalling and manufacturing growth is slowing. Manufacturers need policies from Washington now that will help us create jobs.
Specifically, Congress left town without addressing three free trade agreements, overregulation and tax policy, which just leads to more uncertainty for manufacturers. Please click here to tell Congress that these important issues will have a deep impact on manufacturers, jobs and our nation’s economy.
We ask you to join our August recess campaign to tell Congress that Manufacturing Means Jobs! Will you visit www.nam.org/augustaction to join the campaign and find more information on how you can get involved?
Ned Monroe is senior vice president of external relations, National Association of Manufacturers.
