GM Strikers Say 'No More Tiers!'
"It's uplifting because we're making a stand," she said. "We're not accepting concessions from a company posting billions of dollars of profit. And because we're all together. There's safety in numbers. We're standing up for ourselves in solidarity."

Strikers are hoping to make up ground lost since the United Auto Workers agreed to two-tier wages in 2007, followed by the Great Recession and the auto bailout, when GM got $50 billion from the taxpayers and even more concessions.

The company has since rebounded, making $35 billion in profits over the past three years. GM paid no federal income taxes last year and gifted CEO Mary Barra $22 million.
