Overview

When the General Motors assembly plant in Moraine, Ohio shut its doors on December 23, 2008, 2,500 workers and 200 managers were left without jobs.

Body shop employee Kathy is a mother of three with six grandchildren, and viewed her co-workers more as a second family than simple colleagues.
