Joe Biden is a Noted Champion of the Blue-Collar Worker. Just ask him. He’ll tell you.
The problem for Biden is that his administration tends to ignore the blue-collar workers in favor of the policies of the highly-educated, rich, white elite. And it appears that the United Auto Workers labor union has taken notice of this because they are now threatening to strike over the Biden administration’s push toward all electric vehicles (EVs) in the United States.
The proposed strike would almost certainly be catastrophic for the economy, which Biden is trying to say is doing great right now. He and his administration have adopted “Bidenomics” as a good thing, despite the fact that Americans by and large think the economy isn’t in a good place. It’s one of the reasons his approval numbers are so low right now. But the UAW is upset because the push for EVs flies in the face of the labor unions. Most plants that produce the batteries for EVs are non-union.
