Blue-Collar Band Etx Pushes “Mad In America” Music Video About Plant Closings – 06/18/09

Posted on June 17, 2009 | in Labor News | by

A couple of years ago the blue-collar band ETx wrote a song out of the frustration surrounding the off-shoring of jobs and closing of plants in the U.S. As Jesse Russell reports, the band is back with a new effort.

Now the band is back with a new push for their track “Mad in America.” The group has produced a video for the song and frontman Steve Duby explains why:

[Duby]: “We wanted to paint a picture not only musically but we also wanted people to see the effects, to see what’s happened with all of these plant closings now that all of these jobs are going offshore and their not coming back here.”
