The Ford strike is crap. The area news say that the union offices are taking donations of food so their families have food.
Give me a break. These people make big bucks and can stop the strike.Goes to show that people that make big bucks
think they are entitled to extras that the average person can get. If you don’t know someone who works there, chances of
a person get on at Ford is a long shot.
