The U.S. Auto Industry Drives Domestic Job Creation
From research labs and supplier factories to assembly lines and dealership showrooms, U.S. automakers, their suppliers, their dealerships, and the local businesses that support them are responsible for more than 7.25 million U.S. jobs. No manufacturing sector employs more U.S. workers.
Together, the 15 major automakers competing in the U.S. directly employ about 388,000 U.S. workers. FCA US, Ford, and General Motors employ 238,000 of these U.S. workers, meaning that FCA US, Ford, and General Motors employ nearly 2 out of 3 of America’s autoworkers.
The fact that FCA US, Ford, and General Motors account for 64% of U.S. auto jobs is remarkable, especially considering that they account for only 44% of U.S. market share.
FCA US, Ford, and General Motors produce more of their vehicles here, conduct more of their research here, and buy more of their parts here. As a result, they have based nearly seven times more of their global workforce in the U.S. than their competitors.
