A Job at Ford's
episode 1 (60 min.)
Just before the advent of the Great Depression, Henry Ford controlled the most
important company in the most important industry in the booming American economy.
His offer of high wages in exchange for hard work attracted workers to Detroit,
but it began to come apart when Ford hired a private police force to speed up
production and spy on employees. After the depression hit in 1929, these workers
faced a new, grim reality as unemployment skyrocketed.
