TPP Could Create 700,000 New U.S. Jobs

The facts are in: the Trans-Pacific Partnership has the potential to be a big winner for American workers, farmers and business owners.

Based on the methodology and outcomes used in the Peterson Institute’s study, The Trans-Pacific Partnership and Asia-Pacific Integration: A Quantitative Assessment, we calculated that the United States will create an additional 700,000 new jobs as a result of the increase in trade and investment from the TPP agreement. And that growth is spread all across the country; every state will see net gains in employment.

Why? Because outside our borders are markets that represent 73% of the world’s purchasing power, 87% of its economic growth, and 95% of its consumers. When we negotiate trade agreements, we give our companies and workers the opportunity to compete and succeed on a global scale.

So contrary to what the isolationists are going to tell you – the TPP is a job creator.

There is no more important priority in our nation than putting Americans back to work -- so let’s get the TPP done.
