The meeting late this afternoon between union, Bank of America, and Republic Windows and Doors representatives has yet to yield anything except more talks, to be held tomorrow.  In the meantime, Latino members of the Chicago area are threatening to pull their money from Bank of America en masse, and, in the biggest escalation of all, the governor has declared that the State of Illinois “will suspend doing any business with Bank of America” until the company restores credit to Republic.  WTF?!  Several protests and pickets are slated throughout the country tomorrow, most notably at the Bank of America headquarters in Charlotte, NC.

If you’re not convinced yet that the self-preservation instincts of these worker’s has the entire system quaking in the knees, consider this final note: Fox News is apparently taking the side of the worker’s in this fight.  Try convincing me you predicted that one.
