Spanning four countries, including the American heartland, Mexico, Honduras and China, this book tells the story of jobs permanently lost to foreign competition. Playing a global game of leap frog, an American manufacturer of wire harnesses (electrical system) for cars must abandon $7.50 an hour Michigan employees for cheaper labor south of the border. When Mexican factories are outbid by a Honduran manufacturer, the company moves again only to finally relocate in China where workers make $5 a day, exactly what Henry Ford paid in 1915. Beautifully photographed, this fascinating book documents the political, social and economic impact of an untold labor story that impacts workplaces around the world. Ron French is an award winning reporter for the Detroit News.
