Steve Yokich was the sellout boss of the UAW, heaping concession on concession. Today, the UAW is nothing but a big bank account protected by religious fanatics like Prez Gettlefinger and thugs. Coleman Young was a front man for the Big Three and white suburbanites while claiming militancy. He oversaw the rapid decay of Detroit, and did all he could to assist it.
