Detroit’s GMAC Cash Raps in Solidarity With Striking UAW Members
Less than a week after members of the United Auto Workers launched a coordinated strike against the Big Three, Detroit Rapper GMAC Cash has released a song to show support for union members.
Approximately 12,700 of the UAW's 146,000 members who work for General Motors, Chrysler, and Ford are currently out on strike. That number could increase soon, as UAW President Shawn Fain said on Monday (9/18) that an expansion of the strike would be announced Friday if there isn't serious progress made in the talks between union representatives and the Big Three automakers.
Currently, UAW workers are offline at GM's midsize truck and full-size van plant in Wentzville, Missouri, Ford's Ranger pickup Bonco plant in Wayne, Michigan, and the Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator plant in Toledo.
Standing in Support of the UAW
Local Rapper GMAC Cash stands in solidarity with members of the United Auto Workers union. Cash, who is well-known for his Michigancentric rap songs that reflect up-to-the-minute pop culture released the two-minute clip called 'We Going on Strike' on TikTok just hours after members of the UAW failed to reach an agreement with car makers.
The union gotta stick together, do this for each other
Do this one for all my sisters, do it for my brothers
'Cuz they try to treat us wrong when they say they love us
We need a change right now, we ain't goin' further
We going on strike (repeat)
'Til they get this sh*t right.
The clip has racked up more than 400,000 views since its release last week.
