We shot up to Lansing last night in preparation for the strike (OK, that's not true — we came up here to go to a friend's birthday, but whatevs) and captured these first shots of the UAW on strike out front of the General Motors Lansing Grand River Assembly. It's here that the Cadillac CTS is built, and it's here where GM's UAW workforce just jumped off the assembly line and onto the picket line. It's a strike, baby — and we've no idea yet what all this means but we're all a-tizzy with excitement. Look there are signs! Look there are big, burly men! Heck, look — there are big, burly women too! Striking sure looks fun!
