As President Union Joe is poised to smite down, once again, the legal right of a Union to strike, the question presents is it a payoff to the oligarchy whom owns America in order to get Hunter off of the latest wave of criminal corruption that is plaguing both parties. Last Christmas, Union intervened in a labor dispute between freight railroads and workers last December, urging Congress to impose a tentative contract deal that had been rejected by four unions. The move was controversial, with some labor leaders accusing Biden of betraying his pro-union principles.
And here we go again! A new analysis by the Anderson Economic Group estimates that a strike by the United Auto Workers (UAW) against the Detroit Three automakers could result in a total economic loss of more than $5 billion after 10 full days. The strike would impact production at Ford, General Motors, and Stellantis, and would also have a ripple effect on suppliers and other businesses in the auto industry.
The economic losses from a UAW strike would be significant, but they would pale in comparison to the losses that would be incurred if unions were weakened or eliminated altogether. Unions have been instrumental in raising wages and improving working conditions for millions of workers, and they have played a vital role in building a strong middle class in the United States.
A study by the Economic Policy Institute found that union workers earn 11.2% more than non-union workers, and that they are more likely to have access to health insurance, retirement plans, and other benefits. Unions also help to level the playing field for workers, and they can help to ensure that everyone has a fair shot at success.
A UAW strike would be disruptive, but it would be a temporary setback. The auto industry is cyclical, and it has weathered strikes before. In the long run, a strong union movement is essential to a strong middle class.
The Anderson Economic Group’s analysis is based on a number of factors, including the number of UAW members who would be on strike, the average wage of UAW workers, and the economic impact of lost production. The analysis also takes into account the fact that a strike would likely lead to some customers switching to other brands, which would further hurt the auto industry.
The UAW and the Detroit Three automakers are currently in negotiations, and they are expected to reach a new contract before the current one expires on September 14. However, if the negotiations fail, a strike is a possibility.
A UAW strike would be a major blow to the auto industry, but it would also be a reminder of the importance of unions. Unions have helped to build a strong middle class in the United States, and they are essential to a fair and just economy.
