5 Reasons Why Biden's Investments in the Electric Vehicle Industry May Have Saved America's Future Economy

5 Reasons Why Biden’s Investments in the Electric Vehicle Industry May Have Saved America’s Future Economy

President Joe Biden’s strategic investments in the electric vehicle (EV) industry are more than an environmental initiative; they are a critical move to secure America’s economic future. These investments are driving job creation, fostering technological innovation, enhancing environmental sustainability, modernizing infrastructure, and ensuring global competitiveness. As the world shifts towards cleaner, more advanced transportation, Biden’s policies position the United States as a leader in this transformative era.

Expanded overtime guarantees for millions

President Barack Obama late in his second term oversaw a regulation that called for workers making up to $47,476 to be automatically entitled to time-and-a-half overtime pay. The move infuriated businesses and Republicans, who sought to block the rule in both Congress and the courts. Donald Trumpโ€™s election and a Texas judgeโ€™s ruling in 2016 led the Labor Department to revisit the matter and set a significantly lower threshold of $35,568.

Fixing bridges, building tunnels and expanding broadband

Successive presidents tried for so many years to pass infrastructure legislation that it became a running joke in Washington. Maybe thatโ€™s one reason polls show that voters donโ€™t know that Biden finally broke that logjam, and did it with support from lawmakers of both political parties.

Union-busting gets riskier

Federal labor law has been essentially frozen since the Taft-Hartley Act passed over President Harry Trumanโ€™s veto in 1947, leaving Republicans and Democrats to engage in decadeslong trench warfare at the National Labor Relations Board to nudge legal precedents and enforcement standards in their preferred direction. The result has been an ever-escalating series of policy shifts when the balance of power in Washington flips from one party to the other that puts the fate of disputes between employers and workers in the balance.
