"Is there a place for you in the global economy?" asks a promotional video trailer for a documentary that apparently is not a warm and tender reminiscence of Northwest Airlines.
According to a press release today, the film followed airline mechanics "from the picket line to the bread line as they lost their jobs to outsourcing."
The producers of the film, though, don't have the money to finish it. They're holding a benefit later this month to raise the cash to visit China to interview mechanics who service Northwest planes.
