Divide-and-conquer – it’s a tactic used by big corporations all the time to keep working people from uniting for economic and social justice. But some union workers see through it. Writer and photographer Matt Witt reviews a new book called El Golpe by Rob McKenzie that tells the true story of workers at Ford auto plants in the U.S. and Mexico who joined together to fight for better living standards and working conditions on both sides of the border. Matt not only reviews the book, he was personally involved in the struggle. See his video of the union struggle on youtube: $4 a Day? No way! Joining Hands Across the Border.
