Laid off workers fight back

How about we all help them out with a little email to Mr Ken Lewis Chairman and CEO of Bank of America letting him know how we feel about Bank of America getting $15 billion of taxpayer money while he yanks the financing on a manufacturing company and leaving the workers with nothing?
