"Slavery 400 years ago, slavery today. It's the same, but with a new name. They're practicing slavery under color of law." (Ruchell Cinque Magee) The 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution retained the right to enslave within the confines of prison. "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States or any place subject to their jurisdiction." Dec. 6, 1865. Even before the abolition of chattel slavery, America's history of prison labor had already begun in New York's State Prison at Auburn soon after it opened in 1817. Auburn became the first prison that contracted with a private business to operate a factory within its walls. Later, in the post Civil War period, the "contract and lease" system proliferated, allowing private companies to employ prisoners and sell their products for profit. Today, such prisons are referred to as "Factories with Fences." The Convict-Lease System In Southern stat ...

Announcing the findings of an internal report, Barra said she had fired 15 people and disciplined another five for the decade-long delay that has been linked to at least 13 fatal crashes and eventually led to the recall of 2.6m Chevrolet Cobalts, Saturn Ions and other models equipped with faulty ignition switches. The car giant’s actions come after Barra received a report from former US attorney Anton Valukas into the ignition scandal. The recall has also triggered a federal investigation, congressional hearings and a flurry of lawsuits from family members of people killed in cars with faulty switches. Th ...

NOT AN ALMAJIRI SCHOOL... Many Nigerians have distinguished themselves in scholarship in foreign lands so much so that they are holding one strategic offices or the other in their adopted countries in the United States of America, Europe and Asia. One of them happens to be the Sokoto State- born automobile designer, Mr. Jelani Aliyu, who works with one of the biggest car manufacturing firms in the world – General Motors. Few months back in far away New York, in the USA, stories in the mass media filtered in that this gentleman from Sokoto State, North-West Nigeria, has been credited with achieving a revolution in car designing going by the fact that he recently designed a state-of-the-art electric car beautifully named Chevy Volt. This achievement by this young Sokoto boy was made at the General Motors plant in Detroit, the United States of America.

The revelation comes the same day that the U.S. Attorney in New York opened a criminal investigation into what GM knew about the dangerous defect, and a day after a congressional committee launched a probe of its own. "At the end of the day, you've got a company that knew about a problem with its product, and decided not to resolve it and not to recall the product," said automotive safety expert Sean Kane. He and scores of others today say GM waited too long to recall more than 1.6 million vehicles, including the Chevy Cobalt and Saturn Ion. The recall surrounds faulty ignition switches that cause the engine to shut down, disabling airbags and power steering. According to court ...

After a long and bitter struggle on the part of Henry Ford against cooperation with organized labor unions, Ford Motor Company signs its first contract with the United Automobile Workers of America and Congress of Industrial Organizations (UAW-CIO) on this day in 1941. In 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt's allies in Congress passed the landmark National Labor Relations Act--also known as the Wagner Act, after one of its authors, Senator Robert Wagner of New York--which established workers' rights to collective bargaining and attempted to regulate unfair practices by employers, employees and unions. By 1937, after successful sit-down strikes (during which the workers remained inside the factory so that strikebreakers were unable to enter) both General Motors and Chrysler had made deals with the fledgling UAW, and Ford was the lone holdout against the unionization of the auto industry. Edsel Ford, president of Ford Motor, recognized that the Wagner Act had made unionization inevitable, and tried to rea ...

DO U KNOW Empire State Building New York, New York, United States of America Towering over the island of Manhattan, with spectacular views of New York City and the neighboring states of New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts as well as New York, the world famous Empire State Building is cemented in both New York and U.S. History. Built during a time when dreams were in short supply, as a result of the Great Depression, the concept for construction of the building was the center of a competition between Walter Chrysler (Chrysler Corp.) and his rival at General Motors, John Jacob Raskob. Their goal: A chase to the sky to see who could build the tallest building. With original plans calling for a rather stocky 34-story building, the building went through 16 renditions before Raskob's "pencil shape" idea was adopted. Some say that its final height of 102 stories is the preeminent form on the world's most famous skyline. The first public announcement about the construction of the building sai ...

Since sales began in December 2010, a total of 18,663 Volts have been sold in the U.S. through July 2012.[155][156][157] The top 10 selling states during the first quarter of 2012 were California, Michigan, Florida, Illinois, Texas, New York, Minnesota, Ohio, North Carolina and Maryland. California is the leading market and accounted for almost 23% of Volt sales during this quarter, followed by Michigan with 6.3% of national sales. In California the leading regional markets are San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego, all metropolitan areas notorious for their high congestion levels and where free access to high-occupancy lanes for solo drivers has been a strong incentive to boost Volt sales in the state.[158] In 2009, the Presidential Task Force on the Auto Industry said that "GM is at least one generation behind Toyota on advanced, “green” powertrain development.
