    The streets in Ferguson are calming now. The Attorney General of the United States has arrived. The media will soon get distracted with the next catastrophe, and Ferguson will go on. There will be a trial probably. Will it be enough?

    The Americans with Charlie LeDuff: NAFTA

    NAFTA is 20 years old. Back then it promised us it would create jobs for all of us and stop the wave of illegal immigration from Mexico. So what happened to those jobs and why are the immigrants still coming?

DETROIT -- On Thursday, The United Auto workers (UAW) leadership experienced some blowback in Detroit from the rank and file. Protestors hit the Solidarity House, (UAW headquarters), complaining about the direction the union is going.

Leadership did not appear to be phased by the protestors, but Charlie LeDuff got in their craw when he showed up to cover the story.

Play the video to see how UAW Vice President Jimmy Settles seems so unsettled?

It could be that he didn't care much for the last report filed on The Americans with Charlie Leduff.  The crew went to to Chattanooga, Tennessee to report how the southern auto workers voted out the union in their plants. 

Now, the union's pillar is cracking up north. That unfocused southern campaign cost millions of dollars and union leadership raised dues 25% to help pay for it. 

But for what? Workers and retirees want to know the answer to that question, especially when union leadership looks bloated, Michigan is now a right-to-work state and old workers make nearly twice what new workers make?

Play the video to get Charlie's report.>>
