So inspiring! I love that the workers have been able to buy their own company. I can imagine the pride they feel. Keep fighting the good fight!

I am happy to give to help people who would rather work than be forced to apply for unemployment benefits. If they can give all they have, I can give some, too!

This endeavor is incredibly awesome!
For the last week I've been posting on FB about wage disparity: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.379905152073254.88267.340326026031167&type=3.
What I understand is that you are creating a co-operative manufacturing enterprise that eliminates the EXPENSES OF CEO'S and other Vulture Capitalists!
People need to realize that they can convert their retirement accounts into "Self-Directed IRA's" and help fund this effort.

Everyone: Real life occupations have been happening at this factory in Chicago since 2008. Now the workers are trying to take ownership and turn it into a cooperative. This is awesome. This is what we've been fighting for. Seriously. Please give and help these awesome folks achieve their goal!

My question is, if management wanted to sell off for scrap, is anyone involved capable of running the business at break even or better, or is this another foreclosure in the making? I'm all for the idea, but there's usually a good reason why people go out of business, and it's usually lack of profitability.

Please sign the petition and support these people in this important venture of purchasing this company run by those who have been working there for a long time. This may work and if it it does, how refreshing to know we still help people threatened with the loss of their jobs.

If everybody gives just a little, they can make their goal. They need a lot of cash to buy back the factory.
