  • Another of Moore's subversive journeys in search of an answer to this question: at a time when corporations are posting record profits, why are so many Americans still in danger of losing their jobs? Searching America's heartland, armed only with a camera, a biting sense of humor and sympathy for the American worker, Moore embarks on a one-man campaign to persuade Fortune 500 companies to consider their downsizing decisions. At last, Moore comes upon one high-profile CEO willing to talk...but the meeting doesn't go exactly the way either had planned.
