"I think Ronald Reagan gave us a great example when federal employees decided they were going to strike. He said, you strike, you're fired. Simple concept to me. ... To the extent that we can use that once again, absolutely." - Tim Scott, proving once again Republicans hate working Americans and want you shackled in perpetual Corporate bondage.
As the United States continues to struggle under the yolk of Republican malfeasance and mismanagement, President Biden continues to look out for and stand with American workers.President Obama came forward with a plan to keep the company going and protect current workers and retirees. Republicans were furious. They derided GM as Government Motors, ridiculed Obama as picking winners and lists, and roiled over SOCIALISM.
Republicans wanted to gut GM, cannibalize the company, and sell off every bit to the Vulture Capitalist class who saw an opportunity to make a windfall. Mitt Romney was all in favor of this plan. After all, leveraging companies and feasting on their demise was a Bain Capital special. This would have had the added bonus, the cherry on top, of eliminating the pensions and retirement benefits of millions of auto workers. Sending them into penury and forcing them to take whatever minimum wage, no benefit, no future job Republicans deem Americans worthy of.
GM's demise was a win-win-win-win for Republicans and Barack ruined it.
Just listen to off-handed disdain and blaise hatred the Billionaire Corporate CEO class had at the thought of an emboldened American work force and reinvigorated Unions, as artfully articulated by Tim 'No Avocado Toast' Gurner,
"We need to see unemployment rise. Unemployment has to jump 40, 50% in my view.
We need to see pain in the economy.
We need to remind people that they work for the employer, not the other way around.
I mean there is a, there's been a systematic change where employees feel the employer is extremely lucky to have them as opposed to the other way around.
So it's a dynamic but has to change. We've got to kill that attitude. "
Republican Presidental "candidates" Tim Scott and Nikki Haley rushed forward to cut the legs out from under the UAW as quickly as possible to appease the Billionaire owners of America. Under vile Ronnie Raygun and the Era of Neoliberalism pushed by Newt Gingrich and conservatives in the 1990s, Republicans believe they've crushed the American dream and Unions and those two are eager to appease the 1% again.
Billionares and Republicans hate the American people and want US reduced to Beggars and pliant wage slaves.
As they say, Which side are you on, Republicans are on the side of the Vulture Capitalists, bigots, and mass shooters, Joe Biden is on the side of Labor and the American people.
