Very good documentary film of the blue collar workers and their important role and contributions to our world. Be it a large or small community, the blue collar skills are a necessity and this film really provides a very true perspective. My father was a railroad labor worker for Western and Union Pacific railroads for over 40 years. So, this film certainly aligns with the values instilled in me by my father's work ethics. Great documentary.
