The potential bankruptcy in Detroit is not solely a Detroit crisis; it is an American crisis. Financially devastated cities all across our nation are now struggling for their survival. The outcome in Detroit affects all of us and that’s why the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) is calling for an urban agenda to strengthen our great cities. AFSCME will not give up on Detroit or the workers who built the city — and neither should you.
