“Informed” will be bringing an exciting new episode on American Manufacturing and the continued efforts by both public and private sectors to revitalize it. For the past 30 years, globalization and automation have caused many of America’s blue collar jobs to be lost to other countries and in some cases even become redundant. Both major political platforms continue to talk about protecting what is left of these jobs and even talk about bringing some of those jobs back. The episode will explore the realities of the manufacturing sector and what can be done to save it.
Rob Lowe is an American icon with a stellar list of credits. His unique presence brings to life this amazing series, told through interviews and research by a talented team of independent journalist and researchers.
“Informed” is produced independently of both APT and PBS, but is made especially for public television.
