We've been tipped off to a neat project, 33 Months, which documents the August 2003 closing of a Maytag plant in Galesburg, Illinois. Some 1,800 jobs were lost (see Public Citizen's database of federal trade adjustment assistance [TAA] records), moved to a new plant in Reynosa, Mexico. The project is being coordinated by undergraduates at Galesburg's Knox College where the man who signed NAFTA into law, former President Clinton, is scheduled to give the commencement address this weekend.
The project's website/blog has plenty of personal stories, interviews, and perspectives on NAFTA, TAA, trade as an election issue, and more. Worth a look.
