As Goes Janesville catapults viewers into America's debate over the fut ure of our middle class – a debate that became a battle over unions in the n ormally tranquil state of Wisconsin. It tells the tale from the inside, fol lowing three years in the lives of laid-off workers trying to reinvent thems elves; 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 , s o goes America, a country mired in polarization and falling short of the Am erican Dream.
