R
Blue Collar is the story of Zeke (Richard Pryor), Jerry (Harvey Keitel), and Smokey (Yaphet Kotto), three Detroit auto factory workers who struggle with both their finances and being ripped off by the union. Zeke comes in to work every day to find his locker broken. The union refuses to fix it. On top of that, he owes a huge sum to the IRS. When he goes to a union local to complain about the broken locker, he notices a huge safe. Jerry also needs money, and Smokey wants the union to suffer, so the trio don Halloween masks and break in, hoping to score big. But all they find is six hundred dollars and a notebook. The notebook, however, is not what it seems. Inside, Zeke finds documentation of union loans with atypically high interest rates, proof that the union really is ripping people off. Struggling to find the best use of their newfound evidence, the trio must find common ground before the union finds out and the real trouble begins.moreless
