General Motors is making a huge investment in green technology and green jobs, and plans to sell millions of electric and hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles over the next decade.
The only problem?
The workers and consumers are mostly in China.
The iconic American automaker, having been bailed out by American taxpayers, is facing a major strike by workers in the UAW who want the company to commit to green jobs in the United States.
Ironically, China is now GM’s major market.
Experts stress that the “Green New Deal” promoted by many Democrats needs to shore up unionized labor in the United States if it is to be supported by the working class.
Yet for manufacturers such as GM, “green” jobs can easily be shipped to China, Mexico, and other countries with low costs of labor.
