Pontiac, Michigan, the former General Motors manufacturing center, has
been devastated by decades of plant closings, and has lost 10,000 GM
jobs in the last decade alone.

During the Obama Administration's auto restructuring, General Motors
announced the closure of the city's main assembly plant, which once
employed 6,000 people. Now that plant, together with hundreds of acres
of GM factories throughout the city, are being leveled.

In this video, workers and residents speak about the mass joblessness
and economic devastation left in the wake of the plant shutdowns.
