This week, President Obama made clear his hope that the US auto industry will survive, and GM's new CEO Frederick Henderson was quick to acknowledge bankruptcy may be a part of the future. Meanwhile, Chrysler's future hinges on the possibility of a merger with Italian car maker Fiat. This all points to big questions for the ten percent of American workers whose futures are tied to the auto industry. Wednesday morning at 9, we'll find out what that future might look like and what it will mean for Ohio. *The Sound of Ideas® will be an abbreviated show as we bring you a special April Fool's edition of Capitol Steps.
