WWJ-AM: Marick Masters on UAW corruption probe
Former UAW vice president Joe Ashton has been charged in the federal corruption probe into the union's leadership. Ashton faces two conspiracy charges related to wire fraud and money laundering. He is accused of asking for and receiving kickbacks in exchange for steering business to contractors. The UAW calls that completely inexcusable. Wayne State University business professor Marick Masters says they need to go further than that. “The U.A.W. needs to take a good hard look at itself and see how it’s operating above and beyond putting in place certain financial control measures to ensure that these kinds of things don't happen going forward.
