Traveling from Tennessee to Mexico's Northern border, from Silicon Valley to the Philippines, The Global Assembly Line takes viewers inside our global economy. A vivid portrayal of the lives of working women and men in the "free trade zones" of developing countries and North America, as U.S. industries close their factories to search the globe for lower-wage workforces. We take a rare look at the people who are making the clothing we wear and the electronic goods we use -- as well as the business decisions behind manufacturing -- on the global assembly line.
