IAM Proposes Stronger ‘Made in America’ Rules

The IAM is calling on the U.S. Export-Import Bank to strengthen its domestic content policies as part of its congressionally mandated review. 

“The Bank should use this opportunity to make certain that it is fulfilling its mission to support U.S. exports that support U.S. jobs,” said IAM Director of Trade and Globalization Owen Herrnstadt.  “The last thing that should be considered are proposals to weaken domestic content and give businesses further incentive to move jobs to other countries.”

The IAM’s formal comments to the Bank’s review can be found here with further analysis in “No Rewards for Shipping Jobs Overseas.”
