A group of 500 Hart Schaffner Marx workers held a rally at the brand’s factory near Chicago on Monday and voted to stage a sit-in if Wells Fargo-Wachovia or a potential buyer tries to begin liquidating its parent, the bankrupt Hartmarx Corp.
The workers were joined by lawmakers and union and state leaders in a bid to pressure Wells Fargo, which controls $100 million of Hartmarx’s $160 million debtor-in-possession credit line, to allow the company to stay afloat and give bidders a chance to purchase the historic men’s clothing firm, which outfitted President Obama throughout his election and the inauguration.
