New Video Inspires Americans to Make Their Voice Heard on November 6

Washington, D.C. – In a newly released video, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) is reminding Americans of manufacturing’s legacy in the United States and the need for manufacturers’ voices to be heard on Election Day. The video begins by highlighting the stark reality that the policies coming out of Washington are hurting our nation’s economy but pivots to the potential manufacturers have to enhance our nation’s competitiveness and make us the most dynamic economy in the world.

“America’s economy is at stake. America is at stake. The success of the manufacturing economy will determine the quality of life of every American in the future,” said NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons. “Voters understand that manufacturing creates jobs, makes us more globally competitive and grows our economy. This video reminds us of the connection we each share with the 12 million men and women who make things in America, and why we want policies that encourage more manufacturing investment and jobs here in the United States.”

“This video has an important and strong message that we hope to deliver on Election Day—we need leaders with a bold agenda,” said Kelly Johnston, vice president of government affairs for Campbell Soup Company and chair of the NAM’s Public Affairs Steering Committee. “It is my hope that this video will inspire manufacturers all across the United States to share this message with employees, colleagues and their family and friends. Manufacturing is critical to our economic future, and we can achieve greatness with the right policies out of Washington.”

This is one part of the NAM’s yearlong effort to empower voters during this critical election and provide them with all the tools they need to vote for the candidates who will stand up on behalf of manufacturing here in Washington. The NAM has dedicated unprecedented resources to empower manufacturers, and our efforts will continue through Election Day, Inauguration Day and into the new Congress and administration.

The National Association of Manufacturers is the largest manufacturing association in the United States, representing manufacturers in every industrial sector and in all 50 states. Manufacturing has a presence in every single congressional district providing good, high-paying jobs.
