THE TOWN THAT JOBS FORGOT

Telling the story of the larger struggle in the American economy to lower unemployment, NBC's Lester Holt reports from Millen, Georgia, a small industrial town so devastated by the Great Recession, its unemployment numbers peaked at 21% - more than twice the national average. Between 2007 and 2009 all the factories that kept Millen running and prosperous closed shop or moved overseas. 1,300 people lost their jobs. Caught full-force in this economic tsunami, restaurateur Krystal Chance, banker Sandy Becton, and a single mother and former factor worker Kimberly Thompson, desperately struggle to survive and support their families. Facing a national crisis that has become deeply personal, they manage to persevere with inspiring determination, optimism and pride.
