How Unions And Small Businesses Clash in the Carwash Sector

Okay so, what does the steelworkers union have to do with the carwash business? Not much you might say, although you might realize that there is a lot of steel in the construction and in the equipment inside a robotic automated tunnel carwash. Still, that’s not what I wish to talk about here today rather I would like to enlighten you as to what is happening in the small business carwash sector. You see, the steelworkers union has a smaller branch which now goes out and attempts to sign up carwash workers and help them form a union, yes, this could happen at the local community carwash in your neighborhood.

In fact, it’s already happening in and around Los Angeles and it has made extremely good headway in changing the laws in Sacramento California to come down heavy and hard on enforcement and new legislation on the 2in1 carwash industry. Further, the unions are also pushing forth environmentally friendly regulations, LEEDs certification on all new construction, and demanding extremely heavy fines on any carwash which hasn’t paid what they consider to be a living wage. Wages at carwashes typically are not very high because many of the carwash workers do get tips.

While there has been some exploitation of carwash workers, typically people from Guatemala and Mexico who may not even be legitimate citizens of the United States, the union still wants to help these workers become unionized, and in the process have the legal aliens deported, the carwash owners who have been violating these rules imprisoned, and extremely large fines in punitive damages. This could easily cause a carwash to go out of business, and a new carwash owner will come in. At that point they feel they will have an easier time forming a union at that particular carwash.

You’d be surprised how many carwashes are now unionized in California, and although it might sound silly to you, it is also raising the price of carwashes, almost to the point at which people no longer want to get their cars washed or pay the price therefore the business model cannot exist. That is to say a carwash owner in California sitting on $1 million property with $400,000 in building and improvements cannot afford to pay union wages, Cadillac healthcare benefits, or the other items the unions demand so they can collect their union dues from more paying members.

It appears to me that the unions are trying to hijack this industry, and whereas I have been critical in the past of the exploitation of carwash workers in some cases, I find it unfortunate the methods the unions are using to coerce government and business owners to do their bidding, often bullying small businesses and individual carwash workers to serve there will, which inevitably raises the price for consumers, and potentially will put the carwash out of business. That’s just too bad. Please consider all this and think on it.
