Punching Out: One Year in a Closing Auto Plant
Punching Out: One Year in a Closing Auto Plant
Rob Franciosi recommends this book by GVSU alumnus Paul Clemens. Clemens investigated the 2006 closing of one of America's most potent symbols: a Detroit auto plant. Prior to its closing, the Budd Company stamping plant on Detroit's East Side, built in 1919, was one of the oldest active auto plants. Its closing also reflects the character of the country in a new era -- the sad, brutal process of picking it apart and sending it, piece by piece, to the countries that now have use for its machines. more info
