Laws that affect manufacturing, employment, labor issues and small businesses are of particular interest to the boating industry. Issues such as workplace safety, labor policy, workforce development and health care affect marine businesses’ day-to day operations. NMMA believes that U.S. employment and labor laws should promote the creation of domestic jobs and we work to ensure that the needs of marine manufacturing and recreational boating are represented.
NMMA works with partners and agencies like the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) when appropriate. NMMA is working to ensure that the needs of marine manufacturing and recreational boating are represented in any legislation or regulatory measures.
