Hoot of the Day: The UAW Demands a “Just Transition” to Electric Vehicles

Posted by M. C. on May 17, 2023

The big US automakers cannot turn a profit on EVs anytime soon. So guess what.

  • The UAW will seek handouts that it gets, not Tesla. 
  • Look for Biden to accuse Tesla of dumping cars because it now makes a profit and the big automakers can’t. 
  • Look for Biden to force unionization on Tesla.

The UAW now seeks a “Just Transition” to EVs. Their new concern is a “race to the bottom” started by Elon Musk.

Question of the Day
