Metal Matters!

The metals manufacturing industry plays an important role in the global economy. The materials we produce are used to create the everyday products that make consumers’ lives easier, more productive and more enjoyable. Companies in the metals manufacturing industry also sustain nearly 2.5 million well-paying U.S. jobs and contribute more than $550 billion to U.S. gross domestic product. Our economic impact is greater than the film, aircraft manufacturing and software industries. Total wages paid by the U.S. metals manufacturing industry top $150 billion.

These facts matter to lawmakers and regulators who want to build the framework for a healthy, vibrant economy, but policymakers won’t be aware of these facts unless we get involved and tell them why … Metal Matters.
