Autoworker Caravan held two demonstrations outside of the 2013 North American Auto Show. The opening of the annual auto show attracts national and international press as well as media from the Detroit area. We have demonstrated for several years as the press comes into town in order to tell the story of how workers are faring under the supposedly revitalized industry. This year we focused on how working conditions continue to deteriorate as the difference in wages and benefits between workers creates disunity among workers and extra profits for the 1%. Stiff absentee policies and the expansions of alternative work schedules create an ever more repressive work environment.
