Support the Chicago Sit-In

Add this to the list of ways the 1930s are making a comeback.

Over the weekend hundreds of workers at Republic Windows & Doors in Chicago occupied their factory to demand the owner keep it open or, if not, that they receive the 75 days’ notice of the shutdown required by state law (or the equivalent in severance pay) as well as accrued vacation pay. As the company’s primary source of business credit, Bank of America is implicated as well.

Common Dreams has the AP story on the sit-in; and check out Jobs with Justice’s campaign to force bailout-recipient Bank of America to lend so the factory can stay open.
