Vivek Ramaswamy on Jobs



I have sympathy for workers but no patience for union bosses

Q: You've said you really empathize with the strikers [in the autoworkers union]?

RAMASWAMY: I don't have a lot of patience for the union bosses. I do have a lot of sympathy for the workers, however. People are going through real hardship in this country. I've been through hardship growing up. I understand that hardship is not a choice. But victimhood is a choice. You know, if I was giving advice to those workers, I would say go picket in front of the White House in Washington, D.C. That's really where the protest needs to be. Disastrous economic policies that have driven up prices, that have driven up interest rates and mortgage rates, at the same time wages remaining stagnant.

We pay people to stay home; put people back to work

Q: How would you bring down prices?

RAMASWAMY: [We can both] address the national debt as well as bring down prices. Put people back to work. We are using taxpayer money to pay people more to stay at home than to go to work. That is wrong, that contributes to our supply chain crisis. It contributes to inflation. That's the easiest way to unlock this economy.
