FEATURING MIKE ELK – The United Auto Workers this weekend announced a massive strike aimed at General Motors. Fifty thousand autoworkers have walked off their jobs at GM factories in a number of states saying they want the company to spend some of its profits on wage increases and benefits. UAW says workers want “Fair Wages, Affordable Healthcare, Our Share of Profits, Job Security, and A Defined Path to Permanent Seniority for Temps.” The strike began on Sunday night at 11:59 pm.
