Today U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) released the following statements after the United Auto Workers (UAW) began their strike for a better deal. The Wentzville General Motors plant in Wentzville, Mo., joined the strike.
Auto workers deserve a raise - and they deserve to have their jobs protected from Joe Biden’s stupid climate mandates that are destroying the US auto industry and making China rich https://t.co/6RfunuhE1P— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) September 15, 2023
Every dime the auto industry is spending on Joe Biden’s radical climate mandates should be spent on workers. They deserve better wages, better hours, and a guarantee their jobs will be safe - not shipped off to China— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) September 15, 2023
In December 2022, Senator Hawley stood with and voted to support rail workers as they sought a fair deal with sick leave.
Senator Hawley continues to fight for American workers, working to keep our jobs here in the U.S. and stop the reliance on foreign supply chains for critical goods.
