The real joke is that no one - not the stockbrokers, not the politicians, not the automakers - knows what's going to happen next. They are in uncharted waters, flailing without a map or a plan.

The pitchforks are next:

Republic Windows and Doors
workers staging a sit-in on the factory floor of their former Chicago employer to protest abruptly losing their jobs last week have become a national symbol for thousands of employees laid off nationwide as the economy continues to sour.

"These workers deserve their wages, deserve fair notice, deserve health security," Rev. Jesse Jackson said. "This may be the beginning of long struggle of worker resistance finally."

Leah Fried, an organizer for the United Electrical Workers union that represents the workers, said the company told the union that Bank of America has canceled its financing. The bank had said in a statement that it wasn't responsible for Republic's financial obligations to its employees.

One of the factory's workers, Silvia Mazon, said in Spanish that she needs the money owed to her for an $1,800 monthly house payment. The 40-year-old from Cicero said she has enough money saved to survive for one month.

"We're making history," she said.

Rep. Jan Schakowsky, an Illinois Democrat, called it the start of a movement. "This story has resonated around the world," she said.

That's $21,000 a year or $650,000 over 30 years. She must be the plant manager.

"These workers deserve their wages, deserve fair notice, deserve health security,"

I thought wages and benefits were earned and never guaranteed, Jesse.

It appears that people are starting to wake up to the fact that this downturn/bailout/
recession/depression is actually getting very up-close and personal. Joe Sixpack and Jane Cheezdoodle are feeling the pain and starting to get pissed. What will they do now?? After the temporary euphoria of the holidaze, this might get very ugly.

Hey Van Ice, that payment would would be about right for a $220-280k Home depending on taxes, escrow, pmi etc. $650k over 30 yrs is the interest,taxes, pmi ect. Don't make non sequitur arguments, it makes you appear foolish!

What gets me is why the unions & the workers waited so long to react to the exporting of their jobs. If they had reacted at the beginning -- say mid 1980's-- they might have had a chance. Now, the factories are rotted and out of date and the infrastructure is gone. Even if the US govt wanted to protect US-based manufacturing, it's too late. Most of it is already offshore, and that which remains is rusted, half-ruined, and ready to be junked.

Yeah I screwed that up.

I really don't care. Die unions.

I'm going to defend Vanilla Ice on this one - a $280k house seems pretty rich for a factory worker.

I'm not saying factory workers don't deserve to own a home - I'm just saying they can't afford $280k. Spend 2.5X your salary - do factory workers make $112k/yr?

Ok, maybe she has a husband who pays for half - do factory workers make $56k/yr?

This is why real estate prices need to fall, so people can afford it again.
