Workers Paid to Attend Trump Rally

Mar 20, 2017

When President Trump went to Ypsilanti, Michigan to give a speech, he asked the Big 3 Auto Companies to provide him with an audience. So GM, Ford and Fiat-Chrysler put salaried and hourly workers onto buses, paid them a day’s wages, provided lunch and sent them on a “field trip” to hear Trump’s speech.

Most auto workers would have preferred a more interesting destination. Next time, maybe GM, Ford and Fiat-Chrysler can pay workers to spend the day at the zoo!
