Autoworkers who are on strike say that President Biden’s green plan, which includes rules for electric vehicles (EVs), will put them out of work completely.

In an attempt to secure increases in pay to keep up with inflation and guarantees that their members’ jobs won’t be eliminated by Biden’s EV mandates, approximately 25,000 autoworkers nationwide are going on strike against General Motors (GM), Ford, and Stellantis. The UAW issued the strike announcement almost a month ago.

People who work in the car industry told E&E News that Biden’s EV rules could mean the end of their employment in the American automotive sector.

Workers at Stellantis’ Portland Parts Distribution Center in Beaverton, OR, like 28-year-old Whitney Walch stated, “I believe EVs will ultimately wipe us out. EVs do not require oil filters or spark plugs. In fact, we sell a great deal of those. I don’t think we have much to do if we don’t have all of those things.”

DeJhon Moore, 37, referred to the gas-powered vehicles he assists in making at Ford’s Michigan Assembly Factory in Wayne, Michigan, by saying that he is “good when it comes to regular 87 unleaded” while standing on the picket line.

Moore told E&E News that “he didn’t trust electric vehicles for long-distance driving. Instead, he preferred to do the regular, acquire gas, and go about his day.”

The head of the UAW for General Motors distribution warehouse in Roanoke, Texas, stated that the main goal of the walkout against the Big Three is assurances that autoworkers won’t have their jobs taken away from them as a result of Biden’s EV demands.

Cornelius Lincoln, who is 49 years old, asked, “What if our job security is threatened? It’s practically inevitable” that car jobs will be lost because of EVs, Lincoln told E&E News when questioned about the possibility of job losses.
