Budget Tighter, Resolve Firm For Goodyear Striker

After more than two weeks on strike, one worker at the Goodyear Tire and Rubber plant in Fayetteville says strikers are feeling the pressure to return to work.

Worker Angi Black says the initial buzz of making a stand has waned into a determined effort to stay strong.

There's been no recent movement between Goodyear and the United Steelworkers over the three-year labor contract that caused the strike. The two sides have been unable to reach an agreement, leaving 16 plants across the US and Canada without a majority of their workers.

Black says the reality of not having a paycheck is starting to set in as the days wear on for the two-thousand striking workers in Fayetteville.
