Hi everyone. I hope you had a great weekend.

Meanwhile, workers at a Chicago factory say they need a bailout, too. Now in the fourth day of a sit-in, they were laid off last week, with little notice and no benefits. Dean Reynolds has that story, while Ben Tracy reports on even more economic turmoil in the Windy City, as the media conglomerate Chicago Tribune Corp. filed for bankruptcy protection today.
