Eighty years after founding of UAW
Homeless American autoworker speaks out
31 August 2015
Kokomo, Indiana is a typical American “rust belt” town. After decades of concessions pushed by the UAW, autoworkers in Kokomo and around the country face conditions similar to the “Hungry Thirties”—conditions the UAW was founded eighty years ago to oppose. In this video, Chris, a homeless Kokomo autoworker, discusses the difficulties facing workers today, the role of the UAW, and the need for workers from all countries to unite in a common struggle.
