It rained all day Monday in Romulus, Michigan.
At GM's Romulus Powertrain plant, strikers had a fire going in a big barrel where they could warm their hands.
Steven Boyle walked the picket line undeterred, water streaming off his orange poncho.
"My grandfather was a sit-down striker," says Boyle. "If he was capable of locking himself inside a building for 45 days, not knowing the next time he was going to get a meal...well, bring on -20 degrees, and I'd still be out here. It wouldn't make a difference to me."
