NEW: Striking John Deere workers are furious about the company’s contract offer which would give them only a $2-3 raise over 3 years. Deere’s CEO made $15.6 million in 2020 — a 160% raise. “John Deere made billions and threw us peanut shells...We’re supposed to scoop them up?”

John Deere is cutting off 10,000 workers (and their families') health insurance on October 27th. They could just as easily *not* do this, but they want to break the strike. Also: Congress let COBRA subsidies expire on October 1, putting workers on the hook for thousands of $$$.

Long thread, but important: John Deere workers have reached out to me frustrated about media repeating company talking points that workers make 60-70k a year. One who's been there over a decade showed me what they made in 2020: Under $40k. So let’s talk about wages at John Deere.

John Deere reported record profits in 2021, with a $4.7bn profit in the first 3/4 of this year. CEO John May was paid nearly $16 million in 2020, a 160% increase from 2019. John Deere is offering the workers a $1.84 raise over 5 years. That’s why 10,000 are on strike.

John Deere workers are going on strike. Last year the company laid off hundreds of workers to save $175 million. Its profit: $2.25 billion. Then this year it broke its all-time profit record. Workers aren't greedy. They just want a share of the pie

Profits at John Deere have skyrocketed by some 61% in recent years, while its CEO's salary has exploded by 160% since the start of the pandemic. Please do not tell me they cannot afford to pay their workers fairly. I am proud to stand in solidarity with @UAW members on strike.

A John Deere worker in Waterloo explains why workers are so determined to eliminate the two-tier compensation system that was instituted in 1997, giving new hires lesser benefits:

From IATSE to John Deere to Kellog to Instacart, it's amazing how many of these labor actions are not asking industries that are making record profits to share those greater profits, but increase pay just enough or cut hours enough so the workers can *live*.

I’m proud to stand in solidarity with @UAW workers at John Deere now on strike who are fighting for decent wages, pensions and retirement health care benefits. They are entitled to be treated with respect and dignity, and I applaud their courage and determination.
