United Auto Workers Caravan
The United Auto Workers agreed this week to adjust their contracts with the Big Three Auto Companies.
The Union made the move to try to convince Congress that the Auto industry deserves financial aid.
But many members of Congress remained skeptical about a bailout package for the auto industry.
Senator Chris Dodd grilled executives in a hearing on Capitol Hill this afternoon, saying that the Federal Reserve could help the industry without a direct bailout package.
KBOO's Jenka Soderberg spoke with Al Benchich, an auto worker and union member from Detroit who is heading to Washington as part of a worker's caravan this weekend.
