The Last Cruze grows out of Frazier's close collaboration with the United Auto Workers union in Lordstown, Local 1112. For this discussion, she joins two of its leaders—President Dave Green and Treasurer Rick Smith—and historian Steve Wyatt from Detroit's Local 600. Drawing on their deep knowledge of labor history, they'll speak to the cultural significance of Locals 600 and 1112, the union's relationships to the big US automakers, and why unions are important today.
