The Lansing Auto Town Gallery delivers the immediacy of the recorded voice and presents associated field notes and photographs of the men and women who worked within the automobile assembly industry. Prominently featured are members and employees of the United Auto Workers Local 602, Fisher Body, and Diamond REO assembly plants in Lansing, MI.
This online gallery offers the opportunity to listen to the ordinary, the extraordinary, the wit and candor of these men and women as they discuss experiences and perceptions about factory work, labor and management relations, corporations, the community, and motivations for union activism.
