Fannie Hooe: Michigan Auto Workers
“We gonna get some overtime, you think?” Earl asked, pulling on his coat.
“Only if they can pay us for it. Otherwise–could be lean times!” a second worker proclaimed.
“We survived the recession, right?” Earl insisted. “It can’t be that bad. What do you think, Fannie? You’ve been here longer than any of us.”
“I’ve seen Michigan get through harder times yet,” Fannie said. “But right now, we’ve all got warm homes to get to. Let’s go!”
In my Flash Fiction take on Charli’s prompt, Fannie Hooe never left Michigan. She understands the auto industry and working class struggles. Thanks for reading!

The industries change, and economies ebb and flow, but the Fannie Hooes survive. A true Michigan tale!
All hail, the Great Lakes State!
