Workers in Indiana express concern for the state's auto parts jobs
International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 481 member Heath Hensley pictured here at the Indiana State Democratic Convention in Fort Wayne, with his father Ted, comes from a politically active family.
Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) field coordinator Rachel Bennett Steury initially met Heath's grandfather Jim and father Ted in Anderson, Indiana where they spoke to their United Auto Workers (UAW) chapter about efforts to save U.S. auto parts jobs.
Heath joined his father and grandfather in becoming active after hearing about the 132,000 auto parts jobs at stake in Indiana. He talks with coworkers about taking action to keep good-paying, family-supporting jobs in Indiana and the United States.
