Interview with Grand Rapids Author Greg Shotwell on his new book, Autoworkers Under the Gun

March 10, 2012

Earlier this week we had an opportunity to sit down and talk with long time UAW activist Greg Shotwell.

The occasion for the interview was the release of Shotwell’s new book published by Haymarket books, Autoworkers Under the Gun: A Shop-floor view of the end of the American Dream.

We talked about his years with the UAW, his involvement with the Soldiers of Solidarity, the importance of writing from a shop floor perspective and the state of unions in the US today.

In addition, Shotwell addressed the potential of workplace democracy and the problem of big labor’s attachment to the Democratic Party.

    The Democrats are stooges of the 1% because of our corrupt ways of financing political elections.
