Watch David Choe scour through Detroit and Cleveland with folks Scrapping to survive.  People are literally ripping apart old schools, homes, hospitals and factories for raw materials to sell to local scrap yards for cash. Scrap metal being one of the biggest US exports to China, has an interesting life cycle that often starts from places like Detroit and Cleveland.  David Choe as correspondent for VICE explores the situation on the ground and looks into the life cycle of scrap metal “from the people who risk their lives to find it, to the yards that buy it, all the way to the Chinese traders who take it back home to build their economy”.

VICE episode 13 will air Friday, March 28th, 8PM EST/ 11PM PST on HBO and available HBO On Demand starting March 29th, 2014.
