**Without making the kind of fights that might have stopped it, American workers have seen the standard of living of their whole class pushed down. **And auto workers seemed to lead the retreat. Jobs were lost. Full-time jobs were replaced by part-time and temporary, or pushed to sub-contractors. Wages were cut. Different "tiers" of wages were introduced, preventing newer workers from ever reaching the level older workers once had. **The conditions of work -- with longer hours and greater intensity of work -- translated into an actual decrease in life expectancy. ** It almost seemed as though auto workers, the heart of the working class, had forgotten how to fight. **Well GM workers showed there are some who remembered, and many more of them discovered what you can do when you decide to fight. Workers from Ford and FCA and from many other workplaces, who were pulled to GM picket lines, discovered what solidarity is. **So now, who will be the next? Who will take the road GM workers laid?

In addition to dropping off donations, the Corner Health Center volunteer doulas, Katie Bolling and Allie Giniel, will be on-site for the day to provide snacks and informational materials about the center, as well as to answer any questions guests might have.

On Thursday, Dec. 5, the Eastern Michigan University Cannabis Education Coalition will host a panel event titled “Let’s Be Blunt About Marijuana Legalization,” which will focus on the marijuana law, risks, benefits and side effects. The event will take place from 6-8 p.m. in the EMU Student Center Auditorium, located at 900 Oakwood Street in Ypsilanti. The panel will be comprised of Senator Jeff Irwin, who introduced legislation to expunge low-level marijuana-related offenses from criminal records, Dr. Kevin Boehnke from the Department of Anesthesiology and the Chronic Pain and Fatigue Research Center at University of Michigan; and Community Relations Officer Tim Siecinski from EMU’s Department of Public Safety. The Cannabis Education Coalition takes a preventative, collaborative approach to addressing public health and is made up of EMU’s Office of Wellness and Community Responsibility, the Office of Health Promotion, Housing and Residence Life and the Department of Public Safety. The mission of the Cannabis Education Coalition is to educate the community about the new cannabis laws as well as risks, benefits and side-effects of cannabis use. Its health promotion efforts focus on three key areas: 1. Informed Decision Making (knowing the law and campus policies). 2. Harm Reduction Strategies (for those who choose to use). 3. Social Norming and Abstinence (to reinforce abstinence for those who choose to abstain). For more information on the “Let’s Be Blunt About Marijuana Legalization” panel, visit the registration website.
