Idled workers occupy factory in Chicago

RUPA SHENOY | Associated Press | Dec 6, 2008

Workers laid off from their jobs at a factory have occupied the building and are demanding assurances they'll get severance and vacation pay that they say they are owed.

About 200 employees of Republic Windows and Doors began their sit-in Friday, the last scheduled day of the plant's operation.

"We're doing something we haven't since the 1930s, so we're trying to make it work," Fried said.
