– Business Roundtable today launched a new effort to showcase wage increases, bonuses, and other tangible benefits American workers are already receiving as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. To amplify the positive momentum of tax reform and emphasize the importance of a competitive tax system, Business Roundtable placed print advertisements
in The New York Times
and The Hill
today, as well as ongoing targeted digital advertisements alongside regional earned media efforts.
The ads feature Business Roundtable members who have made announcements to increase benefits for workers, invest more capital in the United States and create more jobs. The member companies include American Airlines, American Express, Apple, AT&T, Bank of America Corporation, The Boeing Company, Comcast, ExxonMobil, FedEx Corporation, The Home Depot, Honeywell, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Lockheed Martin, Novelis, The Travelers Companies, Inc., TSYS, Verizon Communications, Visa, Walmart, Wells Fargo & Company and Western & Southern Financial Group.
“Tax reform is already leading to higher wages for American workers, more benefits for American families and increased capital investment that will create new jobs,” said Jamie Dimon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Chairman of Business Roundtable. “It is important for Americans to know what tax reform has already delivered and that America can now attract more jobs and investment in the long term, laying the foundation for strong, sustained economic growth.”
For over thirty years, American workers had been competing on an uneven global playing field with an uncompetitive tax system. As American workers, families and communities are already benefiting from tax reform, Business Roundtable will document both the short-term gains and the lasting improvements tax reform will deliver by increasing America’s economic competitiveness. Business Roundtable will continue to make the case that our new globally competitive tax code will benefit all Americans.
