    Joe’s message makes sense. The orange maroon’s “message” (if it can be called that) induces an emotional high and hatred. If it really is a tough choice, we’re already doomed.

    There were air traffic controllers who voted for Reagan in 1980, and they received what they deserved in 1981. The corporate state doesn’t care about unions and wants to destroy them. How voters are so stupid that they think they can get ahead by preventing others from doing so makes no sense.

    Unfortunately that is the mentality of many of the blue collar workers in my former union. Forty years ago the UAW was trying to find a way to expand and went after white collar workers.

    I was an organizer for a UAW-TOP Local (TOP = Technical Office and Professional workers). We won recognition 54-51. Subsequently they sent some of the union’s officers to an orientation conference where workers of all backgrounds, education and skills intermingled.

    It was depressing when I encountered some of most ignorant types who held positions in their locals. The most memorable was the middle-aged guy who told me I should not be in the UAW because I was management.

    When I asked how he had concluded that, especially after my explanation of what TOP was and what it took for us to get organized, he told me that I wore a tie to work so that made me management. It was then that I realized why so many voted for Reagan. Absolutely clueless!

    I swear, too many MAGAts were dropped on their heads at birth. Several times, and used the umbilical cord like a yo-yo.

    The share of U.S. workers who belong to a union has declined to 10% in 2022, a record low. Employees don’t need big Daddy Joe and unions to have better pay, benefits, and working conditions. Unions have become an albatross, thus why so many businesses, especially vehicle manufacturing, locate in right to work states.

    Trump is going to a non-union auto parts manufacturer because the UAW told him not to come. The people who will be there were told they have to show up. Auto workers are getting wise, trump will say anything and never keep his promises.

    Our political division will never allow both to be correct, even though they are.

    Look at all the benefits to the line workers Trump is promoting. What is that again?

    Traditionally republicans are anti union because they represent the rich company owners who get republican tax breaks that the workers have to pay for.

    Your bosses gave our tech to China to make the parts you use to assemble our cars at cheaper labor rates. Your ancestors were immigrants. “woke”, much like ‘politically correct’, is simply showing consideration for your fellow American. tRump, DeSantis and conservatives try to demonize those terms. Do they oppose showing consideration, or just oppose Americans?

    “I find it a pathetic irony that the former president is going to hold a rally for union members at a non-union business,” said Fain in a clip from a CNN interview on Tuesday. “You know, all you have to do is look at his track record.”

    “To that point, Trump made a lot of promises to autoworkers in his first campaign,” said Mattingly. “In 2016 he said this in Warren, Michigan.”

    “If I’m elected, you won’t lose one plant,” said Trump. “You will have plants coming into this country. You are going to have jobs again. You won’t lose one plant, I promise you that.”

    “That’s the promise,” said Mattingly. “In 2018, GM ended facilities in Michigan.”

    “In 2017, listen to what Trump said,” continued Harlow.

    “And I was — I was looking at some of those big once incredible job-producing factories, and my wife, Melania said, what happened?” said Trump. “I said, those jobs have left Ohio. They’ve all come back.”

    “They didn’t,” said Harlow. “Two years later, that Lordstown auto plant shut down. It was one of the largest employers for workers in that entire area. Autoworkers union president Shawn Fain pointed out, during a short strike against GM in 2019, Trump and Republicans largely stayed on the sidelines. All of that will likely come up at the debate tonight that Trump is skipping, a chance for the other Republican candidates to try to make their case to voters.”

    Republicans don’t do anything except lie cheat and steal.

    In this case, going the negative way against the outsiders is Dump’s only option. Biden has made it clear he’s for labor and union collective bargaining. Though many of the UAW may well be Repub, they’d better be careful with their vote as they could be cutting off their heads just to spite the Dems face.

    Trump is going to a non-union plant where the workers make far less than their union counterparts, and have no bargaining power.

    Higher wages and more regulations that will make it more difficult to hire people.

    I blame the companys that are outsourcing jobs to China.

    It’s all in the delivery. A huckster and grifter always has that advantage.
