The Reverend Jesse Jackson is teaming with United Auto Workers president Bob King this morning on a bus tour, aimed at rebuilding the American Dream and improving the lives of working Americans.

King told Joe Donovan and Pat Vitale in a live interview on WWJ Newsradio 950 this morning: “We want Americans back to work and we think the government’s gotta play a major role in that. We think we’ve gotta rebuild the infrastructure, put people to work, get the money in the economy, give people the ability to take care of themselves and their families.”

The bus tour, which began August 21, stops in several Michigan cities including: Kalamazoo, Battle Creek, Flint, Pontiac, Saginaw, Jackson, Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, Lansing, Inkster, Mt. Clemens, Port Huron and Grand Rapids. The tour will culminate with a march in Detroit on August 28.
