WHITE MARSH, Md. — Thousands of General Motor workers continue to strike across the country.

In the lineup, are those who were laid off at the White Marsh plant in Baltimore County.

The facility closed earlier this year and it was a staple of the community that employed hundreds of people.

Now workers want the compensation they believe they deserve from g-m.

"We're fighting for our jobs, you know. The tax payers of Maryland had given us $120-million back in 1999 to 2000 to build this plant, to employ workers and we've been dedicated to general motors all these years and now we're not getting no dedication back." said former shop chairman Jeff Beard.

Baltimore County Executive John Olszewski joined workers on the picket line Friday.
