Wow...what a trip down memory lane. He has followed 2 middleclass families since the late 80's as mfg jobs were moved first to Mexico (thanks NAFTA) and then to Asia.

Anyone else watch this?

I did thanks for the heads up very good break down of what is happening in America - it boiled my blood..and they should follow members of congress for two years then air it side by side with this film so we can see plainly that America is a dream for the privileged and a sham for the rest of us...the right to pursue struggle and watch your dreams and loved ones break slowly and fall apart before your eyes ...what a shame

Bill Moyers : ‘Two American Families’ (Must Watch Video) :

Watch Bill Moyers’ July 9, 2013 Frontline documentary about two ordinary, hard-working families in Milwaukee via the link above.

Since 1992, Bill Moyers has been following the story of these two middle-class families — one black, one white — as they battle to keep from sliding into poverty. He first met the Stanleys and Neumanns when they were featured in his excellent 1990 documentary - 'Minimum Wages : The New Economy' ( http://billmoyers.com/content/minimum-wages/ ). The families were revisited in 1995 for 'Living on the Edge' { http://billmoyers.com/content/living-on-the-edge/ }, and again in 2000 for 'Surviving the Good Times' [ http://billmoyers.com/content/surviving-the-good-times/ ].

Bill Moyers revisited his reports on the Stanleys and Neumanns and talked about issues raised with authors Barbara Miner and Barbara Garson on the July 5 episode of Moyers & Company, “Surviving the New American Economy.” - http://billmoyers.com/episode/full-show-surviving-the-new-american-economy/ .

People need to watch, share, get cross, ask questions and connect dots.
