United Automobile Workers workers in Indiana joined the union’s national strike against General Motors Monday. Some picketers at the Fort Wayne Assembly plant want the company to hire more of its temp workers full time.

Dozens of union members waved signs during their four-hour shift on the picket line as cars drive by and honk outside Indiana’s largest GM facility.

Lucy Esparza has worked at the plant for nearly two decades. She says the company’s reliance on temporary workers to cut costs is unfair.

Shane Gillis, the comedian who's been under fire over the last few days for using racist and homophobic slurs on his podcast, has been fired from Saturday Night Live.

Gillis was one of three cast members recently added to the show, which is set to begin its 45th season. But the comedian was canned on Monday before ever making an appearance on the show.

"After talking with Shane Gillis, we have decided that he will not be joining SNL," an spokesperson said in a statement on behalf of producer Lorne Michaels.
