In 2009, more than 1000 workers at the Continental factory in Clairoix, France were told that their plant would close for “economic reasons” and they would lose their jobs. The workers begin to organize to try to keep the plant open. They failed to save the factory but won 50,000 euros for each worker and got the attention and support of workers all over France.
