The "Final Offer" at GM: The "Biggest Employer Buyout in American History"

Tonight's NOW, on PBS, is giving attention to recent events at GM, and the stakes for GM workers. (Check local listings here.)

Today, over 100,000 General Motors auto workers must make a pivotal deal or no deal decision: stick to careers with uncertain futures, or allow GM to buy them out and walk away from jobs that many have held their entire lives. On NOW, a former GM employee returns to Michigan to find out what happens when an entire generation of autoworkers is asked to leave so that their company may survive.

The biggest employer buyout in American history, and the legacy it leaves behind. Tonight on NOW.
