Here’s today’s labor history:
In 1919, ten thousand workers struck Chicago's International Harvester operations.
On this date in 1920, martial law was declared in a strike by longshoremen in Galveston, Texas.
And in 1934, the San Francisco Longshoreman's strike spread, becoming a four-day general strike.
Today’s labor quote is by Harry Bridges, one of the leaders of the 1934 longshoreman’s strike:
““Anybody want to know where to put your faith for the future, for a good living? Put it in the labor movement, cause there ain’t no other place to put it.”
