Summary
"In this moving oral history, workers displaced by plant closings in Louisville, Kentucky tell their stories, emphasizing their agency, demanding respect for their skills, casting judgment on business and government for not showing that respect, and articulating the sense of alienation that has resulted from violation of their values and trust. Even as they acknowledge the negative consequences of the closings, however, they also reveal the positive outcomes they have seen in their own lives. The stories gathered here not only give the workers' side of the story of plant closings; they also help us understand how oral history narratives illuminate a sense of self, values, and responses to the violation of those values."--BOOK JACKET
