Description


In August, 2017, the death knell sounded for yet another troubled American manufacturer: Appleton Coated, a historic paper mill in Wisconsin's Fox River Valley. The mill and its parts were set to be sold for scrap, devastating a community.

But then the unlikely happened. Dedicated union workers teamed with a lone local official to leverage an obscure legal strategy proposed by a community-minded attorney to stop the sale, enable a profitable new business plan, and save hundreds of jobs.

In a world where corporate greed and financial engineering have crushed the dreams of countless Americans, the inspiring story of Appleton Coated offers a road map for fighting back-and winning.
