Yes, would you not be irritated if the company you worked for might automate or take away some jobs? What employee would not? But lets look at this beyond some article In Bloomberg.
GM and the UAW remain apart on key issues as the strike heads toward its third week.
The Free Press is told these are the key unresolved issues, and all of them appear to be tough to settle, with both sides holding firm to their positions:
- UAW workers' share of health care costs
- Temporary workers
- Wage increases
- Building more product in the United States"
The picket lines will continue at GM U.S. facilities this morning for the 13th day.
You can read the same four issues: health plan, temp workers, wage increase, and EVs.
Now why do you think Bloomberg ONLY focused on EVs. Lets go to another Bloomberg Article.
Before GM Goes Electric Mary Barra Has a Strike to Settle
Long article. Read it. Its all about China. Imagine that. China China China, See issue #4 above "building more product in the United States". What's going on here? Ahh, Lets see the latest interview on Frontline with Michael Bloomberg. You can watch the video or here is the transcript with Margaret Hoover. Its more effective watching the video as she is in total shock listening to his comments. I don't think she can believe what's he's saying. Transcript is in CAPS but thats what it is:
Q. "SO THE UNITED STATES CURRENTLY ACCOUNTS FOR ABOUT 15% OF GLOBAL GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS. CHINA ACCOUNTS FOR ROUGHLY 30% OF GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS.
HOW DO WE — EVEN IF WE GET TO NET ZERO, HOW DO YOU GET CHINA, INDIA AND THE OTHER COUNTRIES TO BE GOOD PARTNERS ...
YES, THEY’RE STILL BUILDING A LOT OF COAL-FIRED POWER PLANTS —
AND THEY’RE STILL BURNING COAL"
A. "YES, THEY ARE, BUT THEY’RE NOW MOVING PLANTS AWAY FROM THE CITIES."
What? That makes sense? No wonder she's in shock.
A. XI JINGPING IS NOT A DICTATOR, HE HAS TO SATISFY HIS CONSTITUENTS OR HE’S NOT GOING TO SURVIVE.
The President for Life is not a dictator?
HE HAS A CONSTITUENCY TO ANSWER TO.
What? Communist party has a constituency?
HE DOESN’T HAVE A VOTE.
HE DOESN’T HAVE A DEMOCRACY.
HE’S NOT HELD ACCOUNTABLE BY VOTERS.
A. NO GOVERNMENT SURVIVES WITHOUT THE WILL OF THE MAJORITY OF ITS PEOPLE.
Really? How'd was that for all the dictators throughout history that DID thrive without the will of the majority. Read a history book.
So, Why is he pushing "China is Good, not a dictator, and no answer to the 30% of emissions coming from China"? Why is GM pushing to sell EVs in China? Why does that article you referenced even exist when its only ONE of the four UAW issues?
Everything is intertwined and much of what is really going on is never seen unless you dig. Who knows what is going on here. And if you don't believe any of this, just look

There is far more here than meets the eye. And one article about with Bloomberg writers about one aspect of the UAW strike doesn't mean much unless you know the full agenda of what is going on. Who is pushing for what and why? Who has vested interests in this all. Who has the most to lose? Just questions.
