The following statement can be attributed to UAW Vice President Cindy Estrada:

“The dirty little secret this report reveals is that, more often than we realize, companies simply aren’t delivering on the good manufacturing jobs they promise our communities. We meet workers every day who are stuck in exactly the kinds of jobs described in this report – ones that pay barely enough to support a family and that remain ‘temporary’ for months or even years on end. The manufacturing sector helped build America’s middle class, and its spending in our economy fuels America, but as this report makes clear we can no longer take for granted that your grandfather’s manufacturing job will provide the same path to the middle class for his grandchildren.”
