THE WORKERS' RIGHTS
"These events [The Ford Hunger March, Battle of the Overpass, and Strike at River Rouge] would not have had an impetus to exist if there were no assembly line. Yes, class struggle and racism would always be part of the environment, but the specifics that led to Ford attempting to block workers from organizing can be traced directly to assembly line production and politics. The Ford Hunger March was so pervasive because the protesters knew that Ford had the money and production to improve conditions. The Battle at the Overpass and the Strike at River Rouge both were tenets of control by Ford to keep his production under spy watch and goon control."
