Hartmarx, the next Republic Windows?

A Hartmarx men's-suit-making plant in suburban Des Plaines, Ill. is being groomed as the next potential scene of union-led illegal plant occupation, encouraged by brass-knuckled Chicago and Illinois pols, and premised on the notion that bank lenders (in this case Wells Fargo) are under a government-imposed obligation to throw good money after bad to bail out union jobs, in this case SEIU. Coverage: Tribune, NY Times, Progress Illinois (noting involvement of Rep. Jan Schakowsky), Chicago Daily Observer. Our coverage of the Republic Windows episode, besides the City Journal piece: Dec. 9, Dec. 11, Dec. 18, Dec. 23, Jan. 27, Mar. 27, May 6.
