Biden Joins Picket Line With Striking UAW Workers In Historic Visit
Updated On: Sep 27, 2023
Sept. 27, 2023 | POLITICS | President Joe Biden walked the picket line of the United Auto Workers outside of Detroit, telling them they deserve better pay, in a historic visit Tuesday 12 days into the union's strike against the nation's three largest automakers. Biden, visiting a General Motor distribution center, said workers deserve more of a share of the profits from Ford Motor Co., General Motors and Stellantis. It marked the first time a sitting president has joined a picket line of workers on strike in the middle of a labor dispute. “Folks, stick with it because you deserve the significant raise you need and other benefits," Biden, wearing a black UAW hat, said through a bullhorn. "Let's get back what we lost, OK? If we can save them, then it's about time for them to step up for us." USA Today  PHOTO: EVAN VUCCI /AP
