Contact the Michigan Works Center on Milwaukee St. in Detroit. They were taking apps a few weeks ago, don't know if they still are.

Dont do it! The place is in the crapper and continuously getting worse. The way they are treating their employees is like a concentration camp! No chairs, no phones, no ear buds, no eating or drinking on the line, no reading on the line during your own breaks! They expect workers to put up with their crap for 11 bucks an hour??? The turnover rate is ridiculous and for good reason!

P.S. All of the crap that is being taken is being allowed by UAW local 892. This so called union no longer exists in this plant. The RTW will be a great slap in the face to them. I hope that no one will accept that union once this horrible contract is up. I know for sure I will not be unhappy to see the union go. They are good for nothing. They sold us out just to be able to stay in the plant and take the workers money. They have no representation power according to the 'collective bargaining agreement' that they convinced the workers to vote in the affirmative for. I have been a union member for most of my working career and also come from a strong union working family. I am disgusted by what has come of the union in this plant. I cannot even speak any longer. Thats all I have!
