Summary
  • The story of the White Furniture Company - a century-old, family-owned business that was bought out by a huge corporate conglomerate and later closed - puts a human face on the economic realities of the 1990s. Bill Bamberger took his revealing and powerful photographs during the last four months of operation on the factory floor, working side by side with the White employees. Cathy N. Davidson's text focuses on six people who represent every economic level in the American workforce: a CEO, an executive assistant, a middle manager, a supervisor, a skilled artisan, and a manual laborer. All speak the same language of craft, commitment, and community.
