Here’s today’s labor history:
On this date in 1864, Mary Kenney O'Sullivan was born in Hannibal, Missouri. At age 28 she was to be appointed the first female general organizer for the American Federation of Labor by AFL President Samuel Gompers.
In 1912, vigilantes beat IWW organizers for exercising free-speech rights in San Diego, California.
Today’s labor quote is by Mary Kenney O'Sullivan, who said:
“I refused to do a man’s job without a man’s pay.”
