American Dream
(Barbara Kopple & Cathy Caplan, 1990, 98 min, USA)
Fiercely independent meatpackers of Local union P-9 overwhelmingly reject a $2/hour wage cut contract offer and strike Hormel in Austin, Minnesota, in 1985. P-9's international Food and Commercial Workers Union disagrees with the Local's strategy. After six months of scabs, replacement workers, union in-fighting and leadership struggle, and National Guard occupation, the Local is forced to submit. Was it worth it?
