As Goes Janesville


Episode Info

Chronicling three years in the lives of the residents of Janesville, Wis., following the 2008 closing of a century-old GM plant. For laid-off workers, that means seeking new employment in a decidedly difficult economic environment. Business leaders, meanwhile, seek a pro-business dynamic in hopes of attracting new companies to the region; and the state becomes engulfed in a political firestorm when Gov. Scott Walker champions a bill to end collective bargaining for public employees.
