In Chicago, a group of two hundred fifty workers have taken over a factory, after the bosses announced that they were shutting the plant down.
The management of Republic Windows & Doors factory gave workers only three days' notice that they would all be fired, and the plant would be closed.
The workers decided to employ a tactic made popular during the Great Depression, by occupying the factory for the last three days.
KBOO's Jenka Soderberg spoke with Nelson Lichtenstein, a professor of History at the University of California who has written extensively on the history of organized labor in the US.
