Jobs & the Economy

Promoting a strong economy, creating jobs, and standing up for the middle class continue to be Congressman Hoyer’s top priorities.

In 2010, Congressman Hoyer and House Democrats launched the ‘Make It In America’ agenda, which was originally focused on boosting a declining American manufacturing sector. Since the plan was introduced, 19 ‘Make It In America’ bills have been signed into law. Over the past several years, as the nation emerged from the recession and domestic manufacturing strengthened, the Make It In America plan was updated to reflect a changing economy. In the fall of 2017, Congressman Hoyer launched the ‘Make It In America’ listening tour to hear from Americans across the country about the economic challenges and opportunities they face in their communities. In July 2018, Congressman Hoyer unveiled an updated Make It In America plan that focuses on expanding entrepreneurship, helping workers get the skills that employers need, and rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure.

Knowing that small businesses are the backbone of our economy, Congressman Hoyer has strongly supported legislation to give tax credits to small businesses who hire new employees, restore the flow of credit to small businesses, and help stop corporations from sending American jobs overseas. He also helped pass legislation to create jobs through innovative programs that increase home energy efficiency and spurring the American auto industry.
