In this edition of The Americans with Charlie LeDuff, the crew takes us on a journey that starts at the UAW headquarters in Detroit and takes us to plants in Tennessee and Alabama.
LeDuff talks to workers at the Volkswagen plant: Matt Patterson, Executive Director, Center for Worker Freedom, an anti-union organization; workers at a Mercedes plant; a man who is unemployed and eats squirrel; and LeDuff wraps it up with an interesting conversation with Republican Senator Richard Shelby from Alabama.

The Devil went down to Georgia but he sent his minions to Tennessee. However, those decent southern folks sent all of ‘em packing with their forked tails between their legs.

I grew up in a GM family, but I’ll never buy another UAW made car. The UAW can steal the money I pay in taxes, but they’ll never get another dime from me buying the cars they make.
