The PACE Coalition
The PACE coalition is dedicated to promoting and increasing the more than 71 million American jobs that depend on the international competitiveness of globally engaged American companies. The ability of these companies to return to hiring more American workers depends on the health and vitality of their worldwide operations. To ensure American competitiveness, PACE advocates that the United States provide a level playing field for taxation of international operations and not act unilaterally to disadvantage U.S. companies.

It's About Fair Tax Treatment and U.S. Jobs

  • The U.S. parent companies of globally engaged American companies are a key generator of jobs for America's workers. They employ nearly 23 million U.S. workers, more than 20 percent of the total U.S. private-sector workforce.

  • Higher productivity of globally engaged American companies leads to higher wages for American workers. They pay U.S. workers wages that are 30 percent above the average for the rest of the private sector.

  • 95 percent of the world's consumers live outside of the United States. For U.S. companies to serve these markets and increase jobs in the United States, they must be able to compete internationally on a level playing field.

  • Current provisions in U.S. tax law enable U.S.-based companies to remain internationally competitive, despite a U.S. tax rate that is among the highest in the world.
