Jobs are moving to low-wage countries. Is our way of life at stake?

American Jobs began as a personal exploration of the "jobless recovery." Disturbed by the news that three million manufacturing jobs had disappeared between 2000 and 2004, Greg Spotts hit the road with a video camera to see the damage for himself.

During the first six months of 2004, Spotts visited nineteen cities and towns during production of this entirely self-funded film. He saw firsthand the permanent, structural changes confronting America's blue- and white-collar families as multinational corporations take advantage of "global sourcing" to hire the lowest-wage labor.

The result of 80 hours of interviews, "American Jobs" explores the impact of low-wage foreign competition on America's workers, families and communities.

From the textile mills of North Carolina to the Software hub of Seattle, displaced workers share their stories and their concern for America's future.
