    Chrysler DID NOT give their workers the day off to vote.  This was negotiated back in the 90's by the UAW with the Big Three. That is how strongly the UAW feels about voting and GOTV. The idea was and is is to get our members out to work the polls on election day. Believe me, every contract this day comes up at the table by the companies. So let's give credit to where it is due - the UAW.
