As Goes Janesville

Montana Premiere

As Goes Janesville shows the front lines over the future of America’s middle class - a debate that became a battle over unions in Wisconsin. First, GM shut down Janesville’s century-old plant causing massive layoffs. Then, newly elected governor Scott Walker ignites a firestorm by ending collective bargaining unleashing a fury of protesters demanding a recall election. We tell the tale from inside, following 3 years in the lives of workers trying to reinvent themselves; business leaders aligned with the Governor to promote a pro-business agenda to woo companies to town, and a state senator trying to bring peace to his warring state and protect workers’ rights. As Goes Janesville, so goes AMerica, a country mired in polarization and falling short of the American Dream.
