PBS this weekend: "Surviving the New American Economy" on Moyers & Company
Moyers & Company Newsletter – July 5, 2013 Surviving the New American Economy
Twenty-two years ago, Bill Moyers started documenting the stories of two ordinary Milwaukee families whose breadwinners had lost well-paying factory jobs. But as the Stanleys and the Neumanns found other jobs, got re-trained, and worked any time and overtime, they still found themselves working harder and longer for less pay and fewer benefits. This week, Bill Moyers revisits his reports on the two families, and talks with authors Barbara Miner and Barbara Garson about how the changing nature of the economy is affecting everyone.
Bill presents a new update on the Stanleys and the Neumanns on the July 9 Frontline report “Two American Families."
