Exodus

Not the Jews from Egypt, workers from the auto industry. Louis Uchitelle has the story and it’s tough to read:

Talk to Kenneth Doolittle about General Motors, where he once supervised a team of assembly line workers, and he readily speaks with pride about his job and the self-esteem it provided. “I loved all of it — the people, the work,” he says. “I was in a position finally where people listened to me when I spoke. I wasn’t just a Joe-Nobody. I contributed.”
