Cut CEO pay and give to workers.
Lisa doesn’t think workers should get their share of profits from their labor.
It’s the end of the auto industry!
Just like when catalytic converters were mandated.
Oh no those poor CEOs they are squeezed..
When the strike is over, Lisa can redraw this comic with the consumer in the middle.
When an exec makes more in a day or two than someone on the assembly line makes in a year it’s time for the board to rethink the system.
Ford CEO’s 2022 $21,000,000 pay divided by Ford 173,000 workers would provided each worker with $121. Ford would have accepted that deal a long time ago
You could say the same for fuel efficiency standard; making low emissions cars is not as easy as not bothering but it’s the right thing to do. But it was Trump’s tariffs on aluminum the killed the small car market in the US and really hurt the little guy.
Time to crush that greedy little #!*&.
EVs are so, ahem, ……..popular that they have to be mandated.
The UAW wants workers to be paid more for less work.
Yup, between a rock and a hard place due to pie in the sky leftist policies.
The Federal Government needs to stop bailing out the auto industry and force them to compete in an open marketplace without unwarranted subsidies.
This will require the Big 3 to reduce their overheads — and possibly have sufficiently more $ to pay their workers. In the mean time the UAW is only going to deal the final blow to a dying industry which we taxpayers will continue to subsidize.
It’s about CEO pay vs the line worker. EV arguments are pure Republican propaganda. Shame on you, Lisa.
Those poor poor corporations being abused by their workers and environmentalists.
Xi says that he has a plan to solve Lisa’s dilemma.
Bailing out the EV market is going full time with EVs. Wake Electric in North Carolina is giving free charging to EV cars at their charging stations, no matter if they are Wake Electric coop owners or not. Wake Electric must get out of this free and reduced electric rates idiotology for EV cars at the expense of higher electric bills for non-EV car owners.
I don’t why some say the big 3 are making record profits. I can’t even find the big 3 profits by year. They had lock-downs to deal with for two years, the Government is forcing EVs on them at the same time, and now this strike. Any profits come from handouts from the Government.
Oh, yes. By all means, we need to shed tears for the car companies. How can those poor CEOs make it on only $20 + million dollars a year?
Profits at Ford, General Motors and Stellantis almost doubled between 2013 and 2022, totaling $250 billion, according to the Economic Policy Institute. Over the past four years of the now-expired UAW contract, vehicle prices increased 30% and CEO pay increased 40% while worker pay increased 6%.

Lisa doesn’t really care. She just looks to see what the money people think.
How’s that “Burn more coal!” thing working out for Republicans?
About time you pay the workers more from your record profits in stead of giving CEO 42million
Do you think that electric vehicles will build themselves? Auto workers have to build electric vehicles. It doesn’t matter what comes down the assembly line, as long as there is one. Pay the workers.
The uaw keeps voting dims in, send All those jobs to china & mexico.
Ford LOST billions on its electric vehicles. Its EV pickup is expensive AND useless AS a pickup. Its EV ‘Mustang’ is expensive AND poor quality since it’s made in Mexico. If Mexican auto workers make $12 per DAY, I’m surprised that ALL production wasn’t moved to Mexico! [Trump would have threatened Ford with tariffs on Mexican made ‘Mustangs’ to have them made in the USA instead. Of course, idiot Democrat politicians don’t approve of tariffs or FAIR trade.]
Lisa is worried up the 1% ers who run the auto manufacturers. How sweet.
I saw a news video that claimed if the UAW got what it wanted the auto industry would probably go broke in 12 years. No, the bigwigs would move it somewhere where there is a right-to-work thing and shut the union out or just go overseas. They aren’t going to lose profits and their big salaries.
Two fun (or depressing) sites: wtf happened in 1971 (no spaces) and pretty much any site about the history of the oppressive and manipulative autolobby.
Yep – the Demoncrats did it again.
Stop making bad EVs and make cars people want
Auto workers can make electric cars as well, Tesla is next on the union’s list.
You can tell those on the right aren’t really smart. To have EV cars you have to build them and that takes workers who know how to put cars together. Having an electric engine, just may take a little retraining but jobs are not lost with the mandates.
Good. When the CEO no longer makes 400 times what the average worker makes, we’ll have a better system.
When I see multiple negative comments regarding executive compensation I have to question the motivation of the commentator. One answer usually is the “DRIVER”. JEALOUSY !
Ever notice that automakers worldwide are jumping into EV’s before governments are making them do it? There must be money in it.
Saw yesterday Biden was going to Detroit to “support”the worker demands. While on the other side of his mouth, he gives the auto-industry billons in bailouts. (gullible much ?)
Those poor billionaires.Glad you got your priorities straight Lisa.
“WAAAH, those poor billionaire CEOs! Will no one think of the CEOs?!” Get a real job, Benson.
Dear “sipsienwa” that is Not BiDUMB economics. With BiDUMB Economics there will be no need for CEO’s. The “Big 3” will be Seized/Nationalized in the name of Climate CHANGE Emergency & Run by a 20 something From the Energy Dept. Remember Sam Brinton, the former deputy assistant secretary. Just the type of person to Issue Quotas to the UAW “Big 3” socialst workers
It wouldn’t be so bad if Joe Manchin hadn’t dropped Union requirements from the EV mandates.
Joey goin’ fixit.
Union workers take advantage of contracts to suit how they want to work…slow…morebreaks…complain about hard workers…etc……..
It’s facile to blame it on electric vehicles, and of course that means you don’t have to do any hard work like actually listening to the workers to find out what their complaints are. The problem is much wider reaching.
Dims gotta push it for the payoff..A bombshell new study has revealed that tens of millions of people have been exposed to toxic waste as a result of the push to transition to “green” energy.
23 million people, more than the population of Florida, are now exposed to toxic water runoff from metal mining.
The report warns of the devastating impacts of the reckless transition to “green” energy.
The demand for mining for minerals needed for electric-powered vehicle batteries has polluted 500,000km of rivers and destroyed 16 million acres of farmland.
The researchers found that 23 million people worldwide, as well as 5.72 million in livestock, over 16 million acres of irrigated farmland, and over 297,800 miles worth of rivers, have been contaminated by mining’s toxic byproducts seeping into the water.
This metal mining includes many so-called “rare earth elements” essential to the manufacture of high-tech solar cells, wind turbines, and the batteries needed to store sustainable “green” energy.
While the new study focuses on environmental impacts, global metals mining has recently faced shocking lawsuits against major tech firms, including Apple, Google, Microsoft, and Tesla.
