Soon after taking office, President Donald Trump called for a rollback, urging "common sense changes" if the mileage requirements threatened auto industry jobs.
However, his administration's report on Thursday projects that relaxing mileage standards would cost 60,000 auto jobs by 2030. Those losses would hit the estimated 200,000 U.S. jobs that deal with making vehicles more fuel efficient, said Simon Mui of the Natural Resources Defense Council.
A Transportation Department spokesperson called the estimate of job losses "rough approximations."
As I understand, cost 60,000 auto jobs here means "loss 60,000 auto jobs", and "Those losses" refers to "60,000 auto jobs", and hit the estimated 200,000 U.S. jobs means those losses will impact on the estimated 200,000 U.S. jobs.
Am I getting it right?
