As Goes Janesville

Directed by Brad Lichenstein
88 min

As Goes Janesville delivers a powerful multi-faceted account of
the struggles and hopes of union workers, business leaders, and
elected officials to rebuild their lives and their town’s economy
following the 2008 closure of the oldest operating General
Motors plant. Meanwhile, newly elected governor Scott Walker
ignites a firestorm by introducing a bill to end collective bar-
gaining, sparking a recall election. This powerful and balanced
film shows the power of community, and of individuals coming
together despite diverging politics to protect the American
Dream. Michigan take note. Sponsored by Daily Work/Our Daily Lives.
Discussion after with Dr. John Beck.
