Part five of our deep dive into the life and work of Walter Reuther with the Cars and Comrades.

Walter was a labor organizer who became the President of the United Auto Workers (UAW) as well as the Congress of Industrial Organisations (CIO). Walter had a broad vision for what the labor movement could achieve for working people and he was at the forefront of the labor struggle throughout most of the 20th century. Walter was a Socialist, although he was very much against communism. In this deep dive, we take an honest look at both the successes and failures of Walter's approach to improving the lives of working people. For additional context, refer back to our past episodes that touched on The Battle of the Overpass and our series on DRUM: The Dodge Revolutionary Union Movement. There will be several more episodes in this series (at least 6), so buckle up and join us along the road to revolution.
