Out of Workers
Wide screen/DV

The numbers speak loud and clear. Iowa faces a population deficit by the year 2010. The state is aging and its young are migrating out of state for work. In an effort to address the dwindling workforce, the governor has recommended what to some seems a drastic measure- recruitment of immigrants. The idea has met stiff resistance and criticism. This 30 minute documentary will explore the immigration debate as it plays out within the context of a state's struggle for economic survival. Why is Iowa suddenly at the forefront of the contentious immigration issue? Who is involved and what is at stake? How might the outcome influence how the debate is waged elsewhere? Told in first person narratives, those embroiled in this bitter controversy explain the impact it is having on their lives and on the future of their home state.
