Meet the Old Timers of Braddock, a Struggling Steel Town

August 13, 2010

The struggling former steel town of Braddock, Pennsylvania, and its unconventional mayor John Fetterman, have become symbols of the challenges facing American cities in a time of economic change. As part of its new ad campaign, Levi's has chipped in to help Braddock rebuild, and, in partnership with IFC and the Sundance Channel, is making a series of short documentaries about the town.

You can see the other Braddock films at the Levi's Ready To Work channel.
