Workers Take Over!

Please take a moment and lend your support to the workers at a factory in Chicago who were given two days notice of their plant closing. In order to prevent the owners from selling off inventory and equipment without paying the workers, the workers have taken over the plant. Even Obama is backing them:

The Sun-Times quotes Obama as saying, “When it comes to the situation here in Chicago with the workers who are asking for their benefits and payments they have earned, I think they are absolutely right ...what's happening to them is reflective of what’s happening across this economy."
