United Auto Workers President Dennis Williams fired off a series of statements criticizing Ford for moving its electric vehicle production to Mexico.

“I’m angry at Ford. It has an opportunity to do something for the state of Michigan and the United States of America,” said Williams in an interview with the Detroit Free Press. “People in Mexico are not going to buy electric vehicles. And we desperately need high-paying jobs and technology here. I mean, 7 percent of vehicle cost is labor. How much do they need to make in profits?”

Williams also hinted that Ford may have accumulated enough profits not to need to move cross-border and keep jobs in the United States, with a word on how production moves impact families, neighborhoods, and schools. Tax collection losses were also brought up, which Williams argued could be used to build and expand upon existing infrastructure such as roads and the electrical grid.

“When do they start to think about our country?” asked Williams. “We’ve had 17 plants close. You visit empty plants, you see empty fields. You see devastation of neighborhoods and schools with no tax base. It disrupts police and fire and destroys family units.”

Last month, Ford announced its Mexico move in a bid to free up production space at its Flat Rock, Mich. facility, for autonomous vehicle development, announcing plans to invest an additional $200 million and 150 jobs. In turn, its Cuautitlán Stamping and Assembly Plant in Mexico would lead the development of a 300-mile range electric SUV, scheduled for production in the summer of 2020. Its name is not yet known.

Ford’s expansion plans have also drawn both ire and self-praise by President Donald Trump, who blasted Ford for moving production during the elections and praised himself for canceling a plant opening after the elections.
