The Fight For Shorter Hours Can Unify Workers Everywhere.

The United Auto Workers won many of their demands in their groundbreaking, six-week strike in 2023, but one of them — despite not making it into their new contracts with the Big Three automakers — has the potential to radically shift organized labor’s priorities and unify an often fractious movement in ways not seen in decades.

It’s all part of Trump’s 5-step fascist plan.
