Rev Jesse Jackson to Lead Rally for Michigan Autoworkers

As General Motors begins an expected bankruptcy Monday, the Rev. Jesse Jackson will lead a rally at the state Capitol to promote fairer trade policies he said will help bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States.

The rally will cap a three-day swing by Jackson through Michigan to highlight the state’s economic ills, which he told reporters today are linked to unfair trade and Wall Street greed that have sent jobs overseas.

Jackson will be joined in the noon rally by Lansing Mayor Virgil Bernero, who’s become something of a national media figure on behalf of the Detroit Three automakers, especially GM, which has a large presence in Lansing.

Also expected at the rally are Detroit Mayor Dave Bing, U.S. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, U.S. Rep. John Conyers, television judge Greg Mathis and representatives of the United Steelworkers of America.
