Summary "Wisconsin Rising documents the largest sustained workers' resistance movement in American history. It tells the story of how Wisconsin became a testing ground for the nation in 2011. It was the canary in the coal mine as big money and power waited to see how far they could push people's rights, when newly elected Republican Governor Scott Walker suddenly stripped collective bargaining power from the state's public employees, undoing eight decades of basic workers' rights. Wisconsin Rising catapults the viewer in to the days, weeks, and months when Wisconsinites fought back against power, authority, and injustice."--Container.
