WATCH: Fox’s Kilmeade Blasts Unions: “People Who Build Cars Shouldn’t Get Union Wages”
For many years, Democrats have depended on the votes of Union workers. There was a break in this support in 2016 when many trade members opted to vote for Donald Trump. If Joe Biden is to win the the 2020 election, he is going to have to widen the 2016 gap.
The former Vice President has already made it a point to appeal to union members in states like Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. While discussing Biden’s plan, Brian Kilmeade ripped members of trade organizations saying that no one should be paid “union wages” to build a car.
The Fox host made the anti-union comments during Thursday’s episode of Fox and Friends. He told viewers, “He (Biden) is in Michigan, where he said he looks to have a secure lead, but he puts a bunch of cars behind him and a handful of people, and he said something that he could have said in his basement.”
“But the problem is he says ‘it’s union workers.’ No one is anti-union. But if union wages are going to be the — how we build cars, they are going to be too expensive to build here for Americans to build here to buy them here. That’s why so often people build it out of the country or picked a right-to-work states in order to build them down south and North Carolina and South Carolina. So it’s a disingenuous thing altogether.”
