Tale of two presidents in Michigan, but which is which??
No they don’t but Trump is pushing no electric and the White W class loves him, no electric will leave us 20 years behind
I noticed Trumpies handed out pre-printed signs at his rally, so the crowd could lie too.
"While Biden hasn’t weighed in on the specific demands the UAW wants from automakers, such as a 40 percent wage increase, a 32-hour workweek paid as full-time, and an end to the lower pay tier that was forced on new autoworkers as part of the 2008 auto industry bailout"
Those are unreasonable demands, but that's how negotiations are supposed to work. Both sides start as far apart as possible, then meet somewhere close to the middle in the final outcome.
I hope the UAW members remember the 70's when the Big Three refused to follow the lead of German and Japanese companies and start to make fuel efficient reliable cars. It was a disaster which almost sunk the American Auto industry and they have never fully recovered. Electric is coming , yes it will have problems , but as the rest of the world adapts we can't be out on a limb again
Aren't golf carts EVs?
It's a testament to the power of the UAW. Solidarity now, solidarity forever!
Ta, Dok. Solidarity forever.
Full props for referencing Goofus and Gallant!
i assume the Trump appearance will have mandatory attendance? and probably a big vroom vroom truck he can sit in and pretend to drive like a big boy?
This makes TWO almost miraculous occurrences that I never expected to live to see; the election of a Black man to the Presidency, and a President with the smarts and the guts to join a picket line. Maybe it is not all over, after all (cringes against the coming retribution for having voiced hope).
No President EVER got involved in strikes? I find that one very very hard to believe. Washington personally led troops in Shay's Rebellion. And Hoover ordered troops against the Bonus Army. But they wouldn't go against striking workers?
"“The guy came to my community and flat out lied to everybody,” Green said last week. “Banks were closing, schools were shutting down. I wrote the guy two letters, and he didn’t even reply.”"
Uh, Mr. Green, I've seen no evidence tfg can read.
I was at lunch and our local Fox affiliate was doing warm up interviews of strikers before Biden showed up. I can't for the life of me remember the reporter, but he wad the animated guy usually sent to cover "Wow!! Have you ever seen anything so CRAZY as (insert local story of annoyance or problem. Examples include" These people have been LIVING WITHOUT RUNNING WATER for 5 DAY!!!! The water main broke and it will take six days to fix!" " OMG!!! A CAR RAN THROUGH THIS HOUSE!!!!!") He brought all that crazy energy to his interviews. From what I could hear though, it was good because he was booming out "WHAT YOU'VE WORKED HERE FOUR YEARS FULL TIME AND ARE STILL CALLED A TEMP????" or "YOU WORK A DANGEROUS JOB AND COULD CROSS THE STREET TO MCDONALD'S AND MAKE THE SAME MONEY???????" I'm hoping people watching heard his outrage and shock and start to understand why the UAW is striking. Its a no brainer to some many of us reading here, but even some of my fellow union co-workers think they should not be striking.
Ah yes, I remember when TFFG had the backs of those undocumented Polish workers, who labored on his manly parts substitute in Manhattan. He had their backs, and also their money - until the finally settled with him, some years later. A true labor sympathizer, is WhinyTinyHands.
Not Radio Flyer Wagons, but Opel, Vauxhall, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Maserati, ... they haven't seen a brand name they didn't fancy wolfing up.
Stellantis, aka “Formerly the Chrysler Corporation but now also Jeep and Fiat, plus Peugeot, Citroën, and for all we know Radio Flyer Wagons (but Probably Not), Also No Longer Mercedes.”
Actually, Radio Flyer has recently branched out into making electric bicycles, so almost Tesla-adjacent.
