Abandoned factories and warehouses litter most American cities and communities, as many companies are opting to take their businesses overseas.
Over the decades, union bosses have chased these companies out of the country with their selfish demands that make it nearly impossible for companies to operate profitably in the United States.
But this socialist Big Labor scheme has many workers fretting about their future.
The UAW’s demands have revealed Big Labor’s radical agenda moving forward
In September, the massive United Automobile Workers of America (UAW) went on strike, directly impacting the workers at Ford, Stellantis, and General Motors.
Some of the UAW’s initial demands included a 40% pay increase over two years, a massive reduction in the length of the work week, and the end of the two-tiered pay structure.
Earlier this week, it was announced that deals were reached with all of these automobile manufacturers, with many workers set to receive wage increases as high as 25%.
The good news is that thousands of striking employees are set to return to work in the near future.
The bad news is that these agreements put the future of American manufacturing at risk and reveal Big Labor’s radical agenda moving forward.
Of the demands made by the UAW, many Americans and financial experts find their calls to end the two-tier pay system to be very troubling.
In a nutshell, a two-tier pay system allows employers to pay employees different salaries based on their effectiveness and seniority.
Most non-union companies operate this way, rewarding good workers and incentivizing struggling workers to improve.
Union officials resent this pay structure and call for an equal level of pay for workers regardless of how productive they are.
Such pay structures have been used over the years in many communist nations, such as the USSR and Communist China, and have resulted in economic ruin.
Leading the charge in this strike is UAW President Shawn Fain, who has been very vocal in his support for the end of a two-tier pay structure as well as pay cuts for corporate executives.
However, it should be noted that Shawn Fein earns a salary of at least $347,389, putting him in the top 5% of earners in the United States.
The last two UAW Presidents are currently serving federal prison sentences for corruption charges after it was revealed that they used union funds to make alimony payments, purchase top-shelf bottles of champagne, and buy luxury sports cars, among other frivolous expenses.
United States manufacturing will cease to exist if union officials keep getting their way
Over the decades, Big Labor and its insane demands have bankrupted countless businesses and municipalities that cannot afford to keep up with their radical demands.
Given the exorbitant cost of labor as compared to other nations like China and Mexico, the United States has completely lost its edge when it comes to global competition.
Unless companies stand up to Big Labor, the entire destruction of American manufacturing is imminent.
