In January 2009, Waterford Crystal went bankrupt. The company's main factory, in Waterford, Ireland, was closed, and 480 people were fired. Many of them had worked there for decades. But the Waterford workers refused to give up their jobs without a fight. FOCAL POINT's "Raise the Last Glass" follows two Waterford Crystal workers as they try to save their jobs and a bit of Irish heritage.
