  • BROOKS/Dignity in working class
    Wednesday, September 21, 2016 6:00 PM A few weeks ago I met a guy in Kentucky who’d lived through every trend of deindustrializing America.

    He grew up about 65 years ago on a tobacco and cattle farm, but he always liked engines, so even while in high school he worked 40 hours a week in a garage. Then he went to work in a series of factories — making airplane parts, car seats, sheet metal and casings for those big air-conditioning fans you see on the top of buildings.
