Chicago Automotive Technicians Strike

Professor Wolff, can you cover the topic of the Automotive Technicians strike happening in Chicago at the present time? It's been going on since August 1st, and shows no sign of being resolved after five weeks of striking. The technicians are striking over an outdated contract that gave concessions to dealerships during the 2008 crisis, including an eight year apprenticeship program (Doubled from four years), a guaranteed 40 hours of pay a week, and better wages and health care, among other things. Since most people are unaware of how the auto repair industry works, I think this would be a good topic to cover. Thanks!
