Trump to Auto Workers: Biden Electric Vehicle Mandates Will 'Spell the Death of the US Auto Industry'

Emily Mangiaracina : Sep 28, 2023

"A vote for crooked Joe means the future of the auto industry will be made in China," said Trump, vowing to instead "protect American labor, not foreign labor," if re-elected ...president.

"[Biden] wants electric vehicle mandates that will spell the death of the US auto industry," Trump told a crowd of auto union workers in Clinton Township, just north of Detroit.

Electric vehicle mandates are a sore point for the United Auto Workers (UAW) union, which launched a strike earlier this month against the three largest US auto manufacturers—General Motors, Ford and Chrysler parent Stellantis—over complaints of low pay and lack of benefits.

The union's discontent with wages, as well as federal auto industry policy, have already come at a cost for Biden's political favor. While the UAW endorsed Biden ahead of the 2020 presidential election, the organization does not plan on endorsing him for the 2024 presidential election, citing "concerns with the electric vehicle transition" he has initiated.

Though Biden has promised "to be the most pro-worker and pro-union president in American history," the UAW has complained that federal subsidies for auto companies have not translated into "top wages and benefits" for auto workers.

Auto union workers are also concerned that climate regulations enacted by the Biden administration to accelerate a transition to electric vehicles will hurt auto worker jobs, since electric cars require less than half the amount of employees needed for assembly than gas vehicles, as The New York Times has noted.

"The EV [electric vehicle] transition is at serious risk of becoming a race to the bottom. We want to see national leadership have our back on this before we make any commitments," UAW president Shawn Fain wrote in a memo to union members earlier this year.

In the same vein, Trump warned auto union workers that even if they achieve the wage increase they seek through their strike, "It doesn't make a damn bit of difference what you get, because in two years you'll all be out of business."

According to Trump, "by most estimates ... 40 percent of auto jobs will disappear under Biden's mandates," under which the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) can cap the amount of pollution emitted by the cars each manufacturer sells. The New York Times has pointed out that the agency "has set that limit so tightly that the only way manufacturers can comply is to sell a certain percentage of zero-emissions vehicles"...
