national, state issues
by Sarah Fette
Macomb County Prosecutor
Carl Marlenga, a possible
Democratic nominee for the
Michigan governor's race in 1994,
spoke about important national and
state issues to the College
Democrats last night in the
Henderson room of the Michigan
In his speech, "How Democrats
Can Win the White House in 1992
and the Governor's Mansion in
1994," Marlenga commented on the
present state of the Democratic
"Twenty-two years ago, the
Democratic Party was where the
action was. It was the party to be
in," Marlenga said. "Then over the
years, it stopped being the party of
ideas or ideals. As I listen to the
Republicans now, I'm beginning to
believe that they are the ones who
are bankrupt - the ones without
In addressing national campaign
issues, Marlenga cited fair and free
trade, national health care, and the
environment as the topics he sees as
being of foremost importance to the
"We now live in a more grown-
up country. We are one nation-state
in a world of nation-states. But it is
OK to stand up for ourselves and
demand that other nations drop
their unfair trade barriers," he said.
Stressing the importance of na-
tional health care to the Democratic
campaign he claimed, "With 38
million Americans totally unin-
sured, national health care is and
should be an important issue in
terms of quality of life."
It is the environment, however, i
that Marlenga claimed could be
"the issue that the Democratic Party
can use to bring itself back into the
At the state level, Marlenga
deemed Governor Engler's cuts in
general assistance "one of the
greater cruelties the current admin-
istration in Lansing has brought to
He additionally called for the
state's support for the arts.
Asserting that low property taxes
alone are not enough to attract
businesses to Michigan, Marlenga
argued that other quality of life is-
sues, such as the strength of local
arts, play a part in, drawing people
to the state.
Following his speech, Marlenga
opened the floor for questions.
During this time, he addressed
questions on such issues as abor-
tion, the rising cost of higher edu-
cation, and minority and women's

Daily Graduate Schools Reporter
UAW member Bob Myers told a
meeting of Graduate Employees
Organization (GEO) last night that
the last two Republican administra-
tions, the United States Congress
and union officials are causing the
death of the middle class.
Myers, who is running for presi-
dent of the UAW 1776 local at
Willow Run, talked about the prob-
lems facing fellow workers at his
. "Where do you go? I'm 47 years
old," said Myers, a 25-year veteran
of the Willow Run plant. GM re-
cently announced that the plant will
be closed by the Summer of 1993.
Although GM has promised to
retrain workers, this may not help
some of them, Myers said. "How do
you retrain somebody who cannot
read and write? Or can read and
write at a sixth-grade level?"
Foreign competition is one reason
why American workers face layoffs,
Myers said. "We have a problem:
Mexican free trade. It will destroy
the manufacturing base of our coun-
try. Mexican workers get 83 cents an
hour... I can't live on that and neither
can you," he said.
Another problem facing workers
is the conflict of choosing whether to
accept a job or join the union.
According to Myers, workers are
caught in a cycle which leads to
ever-increasing concessions: to se-
cure their jobs, workers vote for
concessions. When the international
UAW won't accept these conces-
sions, workers leave the union to
save their jobs. GM could ask
workers to make concessions in
plants around the country, forcing
workers to leave their union, thus
continuing the cycle.
UAW member tells GEO
why middle class is dying
"When they 're done exploiting
the workers, Mexico will look aw-
fully good," Myers said.
Myers added that there will be
dire aftershocks from the plant's
closing. There will be an increase of
crime, drug abuse and violence,,
"We have not yet begun to see
the affects of (the closing) of Willow
Run," he said.
"We figured presenting a current,.
pressing labor issue would be of in-
terest to our membership," said GEO
organizer Phillis Englebert. "He
provided an analysis of why the
Willow Run plant is closing."
In other business, GEO members
mentioned present grievances, in-
cluding a lack of sufficient office
space for TA's in the School of

fantastic," said LSA
