Why GM UAW Workers are on StrikeOn September 25, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
Today we’re fighting a good fight and
it’s a reasonable fight. A fight for what’s fair. The rebirth of solidarity. Not only here in Flint but across America. They should pay for our health care. We do a lot, the repetition, it wears you down. The union wants the temporary workers hired. These people are hard workers and need to be treated fairly. Like to see them get
the full wage and benefits. They are making money and they just need to start sharing with the workers. We went without a raise for almost 11 years with the bankruptcy. Everybody does the same work and
everybody should be getting the same pay and there should be no, you know, inequality here. We have to fight for the next tier of
people out there. We are the last vanguard of anarchy
so that the companies would rule the roost like they did over a hundred years
ago. People had no say-so, and they could be summarily dismissed for any reason.
