WASHINGTON — A group of 450 Hickey Freeman workers in Rochester voted Tuesday to stage a sit-in if a buyer or a bank tries to close their plant or liquidate the bankrupt parent company, Hartmarx Corp., according to a Workers United spokeswoman.
The vote follows a similar move by 500 Hartmarx employees at a Hart Schaffner Marx plant outside Chicago, who rallied Monday to pressure Wells Fargo-Wachovia, the primary lender, to allow the company to stay afloat and give bidders a chance to purchase the historic men’s clothing firm, which has been one of President Obama’s go-to tailors.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
