What Bert Has To Say About Flint Metro Area


Flint is the birthplace of General Motors and is second only to Detroit in auto production. It continues to see its fortunes rise and fall with the auto industry, and recent problems at GM and parts maker Delphi have weighed down the modest resurgence the city saw in the past few years. The city’s lowest point, in the 1980’s, was the focus of a documentary film Roger & Me, which depicted the effects of 30,000 lost jobs on the local economy and social fabric.
