Ford Motor Company is making a big push to electric vehicles, a form of green energy championed by the Biden administration.
In order to make the push the company is going to lay off 8,000 workers in order to raise profits and generate capital to pay for increased electric vehicle production, The Daily Caller reports.
The Biden administration has promised a boom in jobs from a green energy economy, but apparently Ford is taking a different approach for now.
In the surface is kooks like they are getting lean in order to grown, but it remains unknown if those jobs will be brought back.
Heritage Foundation economist EJ Antoni called it a boondoggle, stating, “These ‘green’ energy boondoggles are throwing gasoline on the fire and are the last thing we need in a recession.”
Biden has set a zero-emissions climate agenda target and in accordance with that Ford has set a goal to have 40-50% of its total US Sales be electric vehicles.
Ford has said that in order to get competitive in the industry they needed to get lean. 8,000 jobs lean in an economy that has seen the prices of everything from food to fuel increase.

Why is it that all these green progressives never say where the energy’s going to come from to keep these electric vehicles charged up? What about the number of recharge stations needed, or how and where do the used up batteries get disposed? Guess they want people to stay close to home since you can only get 2 or 3 hundred miles on a charge. How about electric trucks to move our goods around the country? how about air travel, when will we see an electric airplane? These green fools won’t accept the fact that technology isn’t here yet to eliminate fossil fuel use. Every day these people prove to us that every left wing democrat needs purged from our government before they totally destroy our country and our way of life. This November and November of 2024 just might be our last best chance to get rid of them while we still can.
