“The proposed 25% increase in duties would have an adverse effect on the U.S. workforce. Currently, the portable generator industry employs thousands of American workers. When considered with the indirect and induced employment contribution of these industries, hundreds of thousands of employees are involved in the design, production, sale, and servicing of these products. By raising the costs of portable generators and generator related parts, the additional duties would increase the overall costs, resulting in higher prices and lower sales. This in turn would lead to the loss of existing jobs, as well as future employment opportunities, for U.S. workers along this vital flow of domestic employment across virtually every state.”
