Trade Enforcement Is Fueling Factory Job Growth: AAM Statement

Washington, D.C. – The manufacturing sector added 32,000 new factory jobs in December, according to the latest employment data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Over the year, the sector has added 284,000 jobs.

Alliance for American Manufacturing President Scott Paul said:

"December was another great month for manufacturing. With 32,000 new jobs last month, tough action against trade cheats is helping create new jobs for American workers.

"The 116th Congress must keep this growth in mind and support policies that will strengthen this trend, such as robust infrastructure investment. With more manufacturing jobs, communities throughout the country grow."
