The strike of U.S. workers at GM continues over issues that impact the whole working class — whether in a union or not, whether a full-time or a part-time, gig/precarious or unemployed worker. These issues include: exploitation of temporary hires, unequal pay tiers, retaining health benefits, keeping plants open, and maintaining a union standard of living.
The fight against GM is a global strike: Korean GM workers have recently struck over many similar issues.
GM workers and the UAW helped set the stage for workers to attain certain standards with their famous Sit-down Strike of 1936-37. Then as now public opinion is on the side of the workers as shown by widespread solidarity from unions, passersby, small local businesses and local communities. But more is needed.

The fight at GM is our fight. An injury to one is an injury to all!
