The Bench front page... An anonymous tipster let this be known to The Bench: A protest at Bank of America, 231 S. LaSalle (at Jackson) in downtown Chicago on Wednesday, December 10. (Say, wait a minute! That's "Day Without A Gay" day! There won't be anybody working at B of A!) There will be a protest at B of A headquarters 231 S. LaSalle, Chicago on Wednesday, December 10 at noon. Fran Tobin of "Jobs With Justice" is the person who told [The Bench's source] about this. Please stay informed. The protest was changed to Wednesday from Tuesday. Even if the Republic Windows and Doors matter is settled (BofA loans Republic enough to pay its workers their severance, sick pay and vacation) we will still gather to protestthe financialconsequences of the bailout wherein banks are paid but do not pass the benefiton to American workers.Hope to see you at 231 S. LaSalle on Wednesday at noon." Now, won't that be fun?
