Meanwhile, because roughly 40% of the cars assembled in Mexico bound for the U.S. include parts that are manufactured in the U.S., thousands of other American workers would be impacted as well. All said, the report claims, “At least 31,000 U.S. jobs could be lost—in addition to some proportion of the 6,700 North American job loss—as a result of a 35 percent tariff on light vehicles and parts imports from Mexico.”
