Wisconsin was a testing ground for the nation in 2011 as big money attempted to undo basic workers' rights when newly elected Republican Governor Scott Walker suddenly stripped collective bargaining power from the state's public employees. What will the people of Wisconsin do in the face of these perceived injustices? How will the citizens rebuild and reorganize, and what can the rest of America learn from their actions? DVD run time: 60 minutes.
