Video: WSWS report on Chicago factory occupation

10 December 2008

Workers and some of their supporters at the occupied Republic Windows and Door factory on Chicago's near north side spoke with a team of reporters from the World Socialist Web Site on Tuesday afternoon, December 9, as their struggle approached the end of its fifth day. Company management had fired the entire workforce the previous Friday, claiming that because the Bank of America had refused to extend credit, the company was compelled to shut its doors in bankruptcy.
