Red Tail (86 min.) (2009)
By Melissa Koch, Dawn Mikkelson
This film shows the story behind the Northwest Airlines NWA AMFA strike in 2005 and the outsourcing of skilled mechanics jobs. This issue of the decline of wages for working people in the United States is a devastating reality to millions of working people in the US and this is at the center of this film. The issue of the outsourcing of these jobs led mechanic Roy Koch to follow the jobs to China where mechanics were doing the jobs of the 4,400 NWA strikers. We learn about what happens to the planes and workers in China when jobs are outsourced from the US for more corporate profits.
