One Broken American Dream

Zed Chang is trying to figure out how his American dream got derailed. He moved to the U.S. from China in hopes of securing a bright future. Zed says he eventually realized his dream when he was offered a good job as an engineer at a major high tech company. Zed was there 9 years, but was laid off this summer. Zed and his wife love the U.S. Their twins were born here. But now the family faces a tough choice - stay in America in a rocky job market or return to China for work.
