your employer threatens to close down; solution - take over!

"Former Republic Windows employees called off the occupation of their workplace early today after its owner said it will keep the factory operating for 90 days while the union and management look for a buyer.
The employees, represented by United Electrical Local 1110, took over the facility on Chicago's Goose Island on Thursday for a second time in four years after they said the owner, Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Serious Energy, told them it planned to halt production immediately."

So where should the story go from there?  How about the employees take over and run the company and keep it going?  That's what's been happening in more and more places. There's even a movie about it, and a web site.
