“Informed” will be presenting to viewers the revitalization of American Manufacturing, which is coming from both the public and private sectors. Globalization and automation over the last 30 years have meant that many of America’s blue-collar jobs have been lost to other countries or even become redundant. Both sides of the political spectrum talk about revitalizing these jobs and in some cases bringing the jobs back to the United States. The modernization of the United States has meant that the job market has shifted to one that requires specialized skills, which the majority of those working in blue-collar jobs did not have. This segment will take viewers into the manufacturing world and find out what actions are being taken to save it.
This newest segment from “Informed”, hosted by Rob Lowe, is sure to impress and educate the viewers. This educational series is distributed to Public Television PBS Member stations.
