The US Congress is considering a bailout of the top three car manufacturers in the U.S. - General Motors, Ford and Chrysler.
While some unions favor the bailout as a way to save their jobs, others have called for this crisis to be turned into a real opportunity for change in the transportation infrastructure of the country.
Mark Brenner is the head of the Detroit-based periodical 'Labor Notes'.
