Auto manufacturing drives America forward.

The greater automobile industry is a massive employer reaching well beyond the iconic names of auto companies familiar to us all.

Nationwide, 8 million workers and their families depend on autos. Each year, the industry generates $500 billion in paychecks, while generating $70 billion in tax revenues across the country.
