How would you prepare for the impending loss of your good-paying job which was supposed to be your ticket to upward mobility? In Dominique Morisseau's Skeleton Crew, autoworkers Faye, Dez and Shanita find themselves caught in the collapsing automobile industry of 2008 Detroit. The threat of a shut down is made more bearable by the attention paid from sympathetic foreman Reggie as well as the group's desire to look out for one another. Their job security turns out to be about more than just a regular paycheck. Topics include: the Great Recession, economic challenges in the African-American community, work relationships, employer vs union, worker's rights, and the devaluation of the American worker.
