Lapointe: From a Detroit point of view, the winners and losers of 2023

Some Winners and Losers for 2023, and we’ve tried to keep them as local as possible.

By Joe Lapointe

WINNERS

Shawn Fain, United Auto Workers

After winning election on a union reform platform, the president of the UAW led a significant and successful strike against the Detroit Three of General Motors, Ford, and Stellantis. Now, he hopes to organize non-union auto companies under the Solidarity House umbrella. It is too early to tell if Fain’s militant labor movement spreads among those employed in the gig economy or simply those not sharing in the prosperity of the recovery. But when a labor leader wears an “Eat the Rich” T-shirt, it indicates that the mood in the land might be moving toward a more equitable distribution of wealth.
