Our car companies stopped being private enterprises during the Obama administration. These days they’re burning through billions of dollars following the government plan for replacing cars with EVs.
The UAW is in the driver’s seat because it elects the politicians who give car companies their marching orders. After turning down a mere 21% pay hike, the UAW wants a four-day work week.
Four days of work for five days of pay. That’s one of the demands made by the United Auto Workers in ongoing labor talks in Detroit.
A 32-hour workweek for 40 hours of pay, plus overtime.
Sure. Why not?
It’s not as if domestic automakers have any competition. Ford is already losing a fortune on every EV car, but this way it can make UAW employees not to make cars that no one wants to buy anyway.
Workers won’t make EVs. No one will buy the EVs. That’s Bidenomics in a nutshell and any mention of any resemblance to Soviet economics will get you gulaged, comrade.
