&ldquo;Moving and magnificently well-researched...Janesville joins a growing family of books about the evisceration of the working class in the United States. What sets it apart is the sophistication of its storytelling and analysis.&rdquo; —The New York Times<BR> <BR>A Washington Post reporter&rsquo;s intimate account of the fallout from the closing of a General Motors&rsquo; assembly plant in Janesville, Wisconsin—Paul Ryan&rsquo;s hometown—and a larger story of the hollowing of the American middle class.<BR><BR>This is the story of what happens to an industrial town in the American heartland when its factory stills—but it&rsquo;s not the familiar tale. Most observers record the immediate shock of vanished jobs, but few stay around long enough to notice what happens next, when a community with a can-do spirit tries to pick itself up.<BR> <BR>Pulitzer Prize winner Amy Goldstein has spent years immersed in Janesville, Wisconsin where the nation&rsquo;s oldest operating General Motors plant shut down in the midst of the Great Recession, two days before Christmas of 2008. Now, with intelligence, sympathy, and insight into what connects and divides people in an era of economic upheaval, she makes one of America&rsquo;s biggest political issues human. Her reporting takes the reader deep into the lives of autoworkers, educators, bankers, politicians, and job re-trainers to show why it&rsquo;s so hard in the twenty-first century to recreate a healthy, prosperous working class.<BR> <BR>For this is not just a Janesville story or a Midwestern story. It&rsquo;s an American story.

There were almost no additional Republican votes, but the Democratic turnout had declined significantlyWhat sets it apart is the sophistication of its storytelling and analysisThe Janesville plant closed in December 2008The retrained, underpaid exiles from manufacturing knew better, their kids knew better, their doctors and the coroner knew better.Goldstein traces the year-by-year efforts dozens of residents made to rebrand and renew Janesville, but in a sense, Paul Ryan's refusal to ever visit Janesville's struggling job retraining center symbolized their failureDespite what my profile says, I live in Fort Wayne so I felt a geographic connection to the storyline for the GM gypsies and the descriptions about Fort Wayne although limited were accurateStill, Janesvilles people believed that their future would be like their past, that they could shape their own destinyLocal organizations and teachers try to help out, but there is less funds available for itIn that sense, Janesville is also like Evicted, another book about Wisconsin that acknowledges personal responsibility while never letting the reader forget the limited options available to many Americans because society has collectively decided to invest its resources and construct its institutions to favor the successful Uh-oh, it looks like your Internet Explorer is out of dateSome try to scrape by hopping from one low wage job to another

I mean, so this was pretty personal to himThe author looked at the changing city from all economic perspectives: factory, transfer, job trainer, educator, business, politicians, (local to federal)The people of Janesville do not give upNothing in his familys past had prepared him for the choices he was confrontingSUAREZ: If you've heard of Janesville before, it might be because of Paul Ryan, the speaker of the House who talks about growing up there oftenBy 1870, a local business directory listed fifteen Janesville carriage manufacturers

Five men, including one in a Santa hat, stood in front of the shiny black SUV holding a wide banner, its white spaces crammed with workers signaturesRepublicans said Trump's promises to bring back manufacturing jobs won over working-class votersThen after closing the plant and looking (and few finding) jobs that pay half as much as GM wages while hoping to get the small car line retool and reopen to have those hopes dashedPlease re-enterGive us pickupsState resources for the poor (free food, free health care) were overwhelmed.However, coming from a working class background, I couldn't understand why the middle class families lacked resiliencySUAREZ: So I guess not (laughter)Jun 29, 2017 Monica rated it it was amazing WowRather than focusing on one Horatio Alger story, this is a journalist-written longitudinal study of several families impacted by the closure of GM's behemoth Janesville plant

If we don't understand the true impact of our collective business, economic, and political decisions, we can't hold our leaders in the public and private sectors accountable to make change for the betterPulitzer Prize-winning reporter Amy Goldstein spent several years in Janesville, documenting the fallout from GM's departure in 2008Mike eventually gravitated away from his family's long history as local union leadersI know this is a trend as I hear it all over the place from podcasts to interviews to non-fiction writing, and perhaps it will stickWhen the Janesville Assembly Plant stopped production, the Lear Corp., which had made the seats for GM vehicles, closed, too, ending Barbs job, then MikesAfter Kayzias father was laid off from GM, she and her twin sister, Alyssa, teenagers at the time, worked five part-time jobs between them, sometimes helping their parents buy groceries and pay utility billsWhat does that mean? Most of the families in Janesville are admirably determined - working hard, changing careers, making sacrifices - to recover from the closure of the GM plant

A child wouldnt notice that, the longer her dad, Jerad, worked as a jail guard, his third not-good-enough job since GM, the more depressed he seemedIts pens showed up at world leaders treaty signings, at Worlds FairsSUAREZ: It's an important part of Paul Ryan's worldview - isn't it? - that it's not government that we should look to in times of crisis but each otherThe government essentially has one plan and this book says its not workingJun 14, 2017 Daniel rated it really liked it Sometimes, at the library, Ill pick up a book at random based solely on the cover or the title and start reading it, ignoring the dust jacket and blurbs on the backflag 1 likeLike see review View 1 comment At the time, I lived close to another GM plant, this one in Wentzville, Missouri, that also shut down 07f867cfac
