This history of Universal Manufacturing Co., moving from Paterson, NJ to Mississippi to Mexico, is a history of “Free Trade,” as it affected one company and several individual workers. Mollie was the first woman to run a stamping machine, and become union steward in Paterson, and one of the last to lose her job. Her companygoes from local to global; and the book is excellent as it explains what happens, and how, at each stage. Not only the workers, but management loses at each level.
