Biden Stands With Strikers in Motor City



In a bold move today, President Joe Biden will become the first sitting U.S. president to stand shoulder to shoulder with striking workers on a picket line. He’s in Michigan, backing the United Auto Workers, who are at odds with the nation’s three leading automakers.

The workers are advocating for a more significant share of the profits they contribute to generating. They’re also fighting to ensure their jobs remain well-paid in the future. As the strike reaches its 12th day, tensions are escalating.

With Michigan being a pivotal election battleground, Biden’s show of solidarity comes just days before Donald Trump’s scheduled Detroit visit.

As Trump critiques the union’s leadership and Biden pushes for green vehicles, Biden is reaffirming his stance and calling for a win-win agreement.

With both leaders courting union support, the looming question is: What lies ahead for Motor City’s workforce, and will a resolution be reached soon?
