Joe Biden has been president for less than three months and already, another round of American jobs are being destroyed.
First it was the pipeline workers, now it’s auto workers.
The UAW just warned members that Ford is moving production of a new vehicle to Mexico.
Everything old is new again.
The Hill reports:
Union warns Ohio workers that Ford plans to move new vehicle construction to Mexico
United Auto Workers (UAW) warned Ford employees in Ohio that the company plans to move the construction of a new vehicle to Mexico, according to a letter made public this week.
UAW Vice President Gerald Kariem addressed a letter to Ford workers in Avon Lake, Ohio, in which he accused the automaker of violating a contract agreement with the union with its plans to build a next-generation vehicle in Mexico instead of the Ohio Assembly Plant (OHAP).
The letter, sent with the union’s letterhead, cited a 2019 four-year contract deal in which Ford committed $900 million for the assembly plant in Avon Lake, including adding production for a next-generation product in 2023.
The UAW said the agreement would secure the assembly plant’s “employment well into the foreseeable future” but that Ford “has decided it will not honor its promise.”
Is this what ‘Build Back Better’ is all about?
Under President Biden, Ford is offshoring a $900 Million investment from Ohio to Mexico
This has the potential to leave nearly 2,000 Americans without a job.
Is this what “building back better” looks like?

This would not have happened under Trump and everyone knows it.
