In 2008, workers at Republic Windows and Doors occupied their plant for six days and won back a financial package that was promised to them. In 2012, workers once again occupied the same plant. We learn more in this segment from the Chicago TV show Labor Beat.

RAHM THE GRINCH VS. OCCUPY CHICAGO

Chicago's mayor Rahm Emanuel has shown little love for Occupy Chicago or for working-class Chicagoans. In this segment, we see a film about the struggle between the Mayor and Occupy Chicago, inspired by a children's classic book.
