Zurich’s Position

U.S. workers at FDI firms earn 33% higher wages than the economy-wide average. This global investment helps fuel America’s innovation advantage, supports world-class workforce training programs, helps U.S. small businesses succeed through locally-sourced supply chains, and helps build stronger communities from corporate support and employee engagement. Policymakers should encourage, rather than do anything to discourage, global investment in the United States.
