From Mills to Malls

Record #:
North Carolina has undergone an economic transformation over the last 20 years. Strip malls and jobs in the service industry have overtaken industrial jobs as the employers in the state. Many people have been forced to accept jobs that make them work longer hours for lower wages and fewer benefits. With the recession and the reduced cost of manufacturing outside the US, NC factories are cutting back more. A call to organize is being heard by many to try to protect the jobs that are left.
