Here’s today's labor history:
On this date in 1991, members of five unions at the Frontier Hotel-Casino in Las Vegas began what was to become the longest successful hotel strike in U.S. history. All 550 workers honored the picket line for the entirety of the 6-year, 4-month, 10-day fight against management’s insistence on cutting wages and eliminating pensions.
Today’s labor quote is by Mother Jones, who led a march of miners' children through the streets of Charleston, West Virginia on this date in 1912. Mother Jones, who said:
"If they want to hang me, let them. And on the scaffold I will shout Freedom for the working class!"
