President Joe Biden secured yet another endorsement, this time from the United Autoworkers (UAW), proving once again that he’s the darling of the labor unions. UAW President Shawn Fain made the announcement at their fancy national conference in Washington, D.C., surrounded by a sea of cheering UAW members. It was quite the spectacle, folks.
Biden Earns UAW Endorsement As Union Job Share Sinks To All Time Lowhttps://t.co/1Nze2v7nnv

Fain praised Biden for supposedly believing in the American worker, while taking a swipe at former President Donald Trump, who apparently spent too much time blaming the American worker instead of cozying up to the unions. Well, well, well, Mr. Biden, it seems you’ve won the support of the UAW, but surely their endorsement must be worth its weight in gold, right?
In a not-so-shocking turn of events, Biden took to the podium wearing a UAW baseball cap. Talk about pandering! It’s like he’s auditioning for the role of “Most Pro-Union President Ever.” Maybe next time he’ll show up in a full autoworker jumpsuit, complete with grease stains.
But let’s not forget the facts, folks. Despite all the fanfare and endorsements, union job shares in the United States have hit an all-time low. That’s right, folks, while Biden was busy collecting endorsements from the unions, the overall percentage of American workers belonging to a union dropped to a measly 10%. That’s like saying there’s a 90% chance you won’t be a part of a union if you’re an American worker. Not exactly a ringing endorsement for our union-loving president, now is it?
Let’s also not overlook the fact that more than half of union households voted for Biden in the 2020 election. Who would’ve guessed? It’s almost as if labor unions tend to lean left. But hey, the working-class folks without a college degree still had some sense, with 53% of them voting for Trump. Looks like the blue-collar workers aren’t easily swayed by empty promises and fancy endorsements.
So, congratulations, President Biden, on earning the endorsement of the UAW. It seems you’ve won over the hearts of the labor unions, even as the overall union job shares hit rock bottom. But remember, actions speak louder than words, and the American workers deserve more than just a baseball cap and a catchy slogan. So far, all we’ve seen is a lot of talk and not enough action.
