THE LAST TRUCK: CLOSING OF A GM PLANT Documentary on HBO Preview

THE LAST TRUCK: THE CLOSING OF A GM PLANT

Check out a preview of the upcoming HBO documentary THE LAST TRUCK: CLOSING OF A GM PLANT airing Monday September 7 at 9 pm. This documentary follows the workers of the General Motors Assembly Plant in Moraine, Ohio from the 2008 announcement that the plant will be closing, to its last day in operation.

I urge everyone to watch this documentary as it is a testament to the economic impact of mega-corporations making decisions that impact the lives of hard working americans. This can happen to any of us.

Summary: To the residents of Moraine, Ohio, General Motors was more than just a car company, it was the lifeblood of a community. In the wake of GM’s 2008 announcement that it was closing the plant, stunned workers looked back at their careers at GM, reminiscing about the opportunities, friendships and pride that the factory line had given them. Through their words, this documentary stands as an elegy to a dying American manufacturing system–and a timely look at the U.S. auto industry in crisis.
