The migration of blue-collar jobs to non-union or lower-wage destinations on both sides of the Texas-Mexico border have left Indiana hollowed up. Indianapolis is a graveyard of abandoned factory buildings and hundreds of left behind workers. Farah Stockman's new book American Made is focused on a question: "What happens to people when work disappears?" She follows 3 skilled, but unemployed former factory workers --one woman, 2 men, one White, one African American. But they're all human and all wondering what happens next.
