middle-class? How do you know? After they lost their jobs, did
the workers feel that their class status had changed? Did they feel
upwardly mobile, downwardly mobile, or that their status stayed
Did their experience of unemployment make the workers more
united or more divided amongst themselves? What role did art
the photography show after the closing – play in uniting or
Who, if anyone, did the workers think was responsible for their
economic difficulties? Do you sense an “us” vs. “them”? If not,
why not? What, if anything, did the workers think should be done
7 to improve things?

Factory, formulate a clear answer to the question. Be sure to provide evidence from
