Why are union shops assumed to be corrupt and non-union companies heroic? Don't you think non union companies hire lobbyists to influence politicians? Have you seen the ignominious anti EV lobbying by Toyota which is mostly non-union?Not to get political but the Unions and the money feeding between politicians and ford and GM is why I'm glad companies like Tesla and Rivian are coming in.
Despite being non union, Tesla is still operating at a loss and is only EBITDA positive because of its sale of carbon credits. Check its financial reports.
Before you flame me...I own a Tesla and have a Tesla Solar system. Just saying, let's not make blanket assumptions. Unions have been vital to growth of the American middle class and should not be demonized.
