Is The GM Strike Beneficial?
This morning, members of the United Auto Workers Union are on strike against General Motors. The Union’s 46 thousand hourly workers walked out at 31 GM factories and 21 other facilities across nine states including North Carolina. In the video, there’s about a dozen local GM Employees demonstrating in Steele Creek. The workers are fighting for better pay, affordable healthcare, and job security.
Local UAW President, Marc McQuillen says, this is about making sure working people are making a working wage. Both sides are planning to meet again today! Meantime, production across the US is expected to come to a halt.
