Infrastructure Investment to Create More Than 100,000 Equipment Manufacturing Jobs

More than 100,000 family-sustaining equipment manufacturing jobs can be created before the end of President Biden’s first term in office, according to new data from IHS Markit released Tuesday by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM). These are high-skilled jobs in primarily rural areas that pay an average annual income of $88,000, which is 35 percent above the current national average.


The IHS Markit methodology assumes new infrastructure spending will occur over eight years, beginning in 2022, with three quarters of the spending taking place during the first five years. Finally, it assumes that the Surface Transportation Reauthorization Act of 2021 will pass in the fall of 2021 at a five-year total investment of $303 billion.


“The new data shows that President Biden can fulfill his campaign promise by working with Congress to advance fiscally responsible legislation that addresses our country’s infrastructure needs, creates family-sustaining jobs, protects our planet, and grows our economy,” said Kip Eideberg, AEM senior vice president of government and industry relations. “It is time for policymakers on both sides of the aisle to put policy ahead of politics and pass the bipartisan infrastructure framework and secure a five-year surface transportation reauthorization as soon as possible.”


“The bipartisan infrastructure framework agreed to by the White House and a group of Senators, coupled with a five-year surface transportation reauthorizations, is vital for the 2.8 million men and women of the equipment manufacturing industry, for their families and communities, for the U.S. economy, and for bipartisanship in this country. The data shows that it would also create nearly 500,000 new manufacturing jobs overall, generate over $2 billion in new federal, state, and local tax revenue from the equipment manufacturing industry, and result in an additional $27 billion in overall economic output,” added Eideberg.


A significant long-term investment in our highways, water, energy, and communications infrastructure will bolster the economic recovery, create jobs, and ensure the United States is competitive over the long run. It will also generate much needed tax revenue for state and local governments still struggling with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
