Pat says:

These are pictures that my grandfather had of the first strike by Automotive workers. The Ford workers stopped all traffic on the Ambassadr bridge by parking their own vehicles there. What a show of solidarity. People are against unions but, they should realize that Unions brought benefits into the work field and made sure that all work places are safe – unionized or not.
