Eye-opening and poignant

A measured look at a complex issue. I was curious how the film would end since I could not imagine it ending in any other way than in an impasse. The film takes its time to bring you to the present, to allow one to ruminate in the job loss of well-paying factory jobs in the US replaced by lower paying jobs that require much more physical risk and that are more psychologically stressful. The documentary seems to take a middle of the road approach, but there were a few statistics that were mind boggling, in particular the one million dollar anti-union consultant group. That is deep investment in not wanting workers to seek organized representation. Companies are deathly scared of unions, check. Eye-opening and poignant.
