NADA Releases New Video on the Economic Benefits of Local Dealers
McLEAN, Va. (Dec. 5, 2014) – America’s new-car and -truck dealers are the economic backbone of Main Street—providing price competition and well-paying local jobs and building strong communities, says the National Automobile Dealers Association in a new animated video released today as part of its “Get The Facts” initiative.
“Dealers provide more than 1 million jobs nationwide in sales, servicing and management … that average $53,000 per year plus benefits and with room for advancement,” NADA says. “Dealers drive job creation in other businesses as well—from local broadcasting to construction to finance. Adding these jobs and related fields, local dealers are responsible for another million jobs nationwide.”
“Dealers also generate more than 15 percent of state and local taxes nationwide … and pay billions in property, sales and income taxes that fund local schools, police and fire departments,” adds NADA. “These local dealers compete on pricing and financing, and provide extra accountability on warranty and recall issues too—benefiting consumers and local communities everywhere.”
NADA’s “Get The Facts” initiative is designed to inform policymakers, opinion leaders and the media about the numerous benefits of the dealer franchise network through a variety of multimedia resources and videos available at www.nada.org/GetTheFacts.
NADA represents more than 16,000 new-car and -truck dealerships with about 32,000 domestic and international franchises. For more information, visit www.nada.org.
