Did you Know?
Over the last decade, we have lost more manufacturing jobs than during the
Great Depression. That’s 50,000 facilities and nearly six million manufacturing jobs gone. This outsourcing has spread to other sectors as well, like call centers, health care, administrative services and more.
The Bring Jobs Home Act (S. 2884/H.R. 5542), would eliminate the tax incentive that outsourcing companies receive for moving expenses when they ship jobs overseas. It also rewards those companies that bring jobs back with a 20 percent tax credit on expenses incurred when moving employment back to the U.S.
Please, call your Members of Congress today by dialing the Capitol switchboard toll-free at 866-297-3817.
- Ask each of your Senators to pass the Bring Jobs Home Act (S. 2884).
Note: We anticipate a Senate vote on this bill during the second week in July.
- Ask your Representative to cosponsor the Bring Jobs Home Act (H.R. 5542).
