Striking autoworkers want to end a system that pays different wages for the same job
Striking autoworkers want to end the current wage-based system and have all autoworkers receive the same base rate for their job regardless of seniority, location, or any other factors. They want the wages to be fair, equitable, and equal for all autoworkers across the board. They have said that different wages for the same job is not acceptable, and that no employee should be paid less because of lack of experience, lack of seniority, or due to the location of their job. They are fighting for a system that rewards individuals for their hard work, regardless of any other factors.
