But much less attention has been focused on the plight of blue-collar
workers, like those on Ford’s factory floors. After the #MeToo movement
opened a global floodgate of accounts of mistreatment, a former Chicago
worker proposed a new campaign: “#WhatAboutUs.”

Ford has worked to combat harassment at the plants, including recently
stepping up disciplinary efforts and installing new leadership. But over
the years the company did not act aggressively or consistently enough to
root out the problem, according to interviews with more than 100 current
and former employees and industry experts, and a review of legal documents.
