    Ban fossil fuels? They’re out for your gas stoves, why not NASCAR? A waste of fuel.

    Republicans HATE unions.

    They’re so… you know, middle class.

    And your point Payne? Would you prefer scabs? Oh, Right, of course you would. Only right wingers fight for less.

    Of course, the corporate state sees strikes as threatening their greed, thus this cartoon. What’s to stop strikes at those others auto makers? Surely their workers know what’s happening in this country. What ever happened to the assumption that productivity gains should be shared? We did it from 1945-70.

    Biden to appear on the picket line today. That will last 3-4 minutes. Will he carry his usual “cheat sheet” with answers to reporters’ questions? Like previous ones…“You come into the room and sit. Take 1 question from X, smile, stand up and look confused, trying to figure out which way to the exit”.

    Adios Detroit losers. There are indeed plenty of other, and better options.

    The critics of unions are the same folks who claim that the average person is not able to make it because of “Bidenomics”. The cognitive dissonance of being anti-worker but wanting workers to have a better circumstance is quite astounding. How does that happen? Magic?

    Those others aren’t unionized. That’s the point of the cartoon. Toyota, Honda, and Tesla workers in the USA aren’t unionized, but ARE well paid.

    Around 1968, Americans started dumping their Detroit Iron in favor of this silly little car called the Toyota. Welcome to Round Two!

    Let’s see. Currently a F-250 4×4 costs about $65,000. With a 46% pay raise and four day work week how much will the price have to inflate? Of course, if you’re a UAW worker who gets paid a very livable salary to tighten a bolt on an assembly line, the increased cost won’t bother your budget. There is n control of greed. Shut’em down.

    It would take a GM worker 362 years to make CEO Mary Barra’s annual compensation. – Business Insider

    It’s been a central argument for the United Auto Workers union: If Detroit’s three automakers raised CEO pay by 40% over the past four years, workers should get similar raises.

    UAW President Shawn Fain has repeatedly cited the figure, contrasting it with the 6% pay raises autoworkers have received since their last contract in 2019. He opened negotiations with a demand for a similar 40% wage increase over four years, along with the return of pensions and cost of living increases.

    So you had to try to draw a car again? Point taken, you support the CEOs with 300% + salary disparity to their average workers

    ^ A central argument maybe, but not a good argument. In all walks of life, managers and executives get paid more than line workers because their work is tougher and they have to work longer and harder. Anyone who has filled both roles understands this.

    You see? If it’s important, it’s simple. But the simple things are always hard.

    Imagine if all drivers went on strike for one day. 350,000,000 gallons of gasoline would not be sold in the USA. Imagine the cost in lost TAX revenue! Forget about the oil companies…

    It takes a genuine narcissist to defend CEOs earning hundreds of millions of dollars and workers pay going backwards, adjusted for inflation. It is even more galling when same CEOs brag on earnings calls that costs flattened out months ago, but maintaining higher prices is resulting in massive profits.
