As the UAW’s simultaneous strike against Ford, General Motors, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles stretches into its second week, US President Joe Biden made a historic visit to workers on the picket line. He addressed UAW members at GM’s Willow Run redistribution center west of Detroit, marking the first time a president has made such a move while holding office.
“You guys, the UAW, you saved the auto industry back in 2008 and before,” said Biden, speaking to members of UAW Local 174 via bullhorn. “You made a lot of sacrifices, gave up a lot when the companies were in trouble. But now they’re doing incredibly well. And guess what? You should be doing incredibly well too.”
