MAKING SEN$E - Janesville, Wisconsin

"It's a slow, painful recovery for this former manufacturing town" PBS NewsHour 5/4/2017


SUMMARY:  Once a proud industrial town, Janesville, Wisconsin, was knocked for a loop in 2008 when General Motors idled its assembly plant, the area's long-time largest employer.  Economics correspondent Paul Solman talks to Amy Goldstein, author of "Janesville: An American Story," about the complicated picture of how the town and its people have tried to recover and adapt.
