As Goes Janesville

As Goes Janesville reports from ground zero of America's recession-ridden heartland. When bankrupt General Motors shuts down their century-old plant, workers to leave their families in search of decent jobs, local business leaders seize the moment to woo new companies with the promise of lower wages, reduced regulation and tax breaks. Their powerful alliance with newly-elected Republican Governor Scott Walker starts with an "open for business" manifesto but soon morphs into a "divide and conquer" anti-union crusade that thrusts Wisconsin into a civil war and eventual recall election. A cautionary tale for a polarized country falling short of the American Dream, the film follows three years in the lives of laid-off workers struggling to survive, business leaders trying to reinvent their economy, and a state senator caught in the middle, trying to negotiate a peace for his warring state while protecting workers' rights. As Goes Janesville, so goes America.
