In today’s labor history, on this date in 1977, Philadelphia’s longest transit strike ended after 44 days. A key issue in the fight was the hiring and use of part-timers.
Today’s labor quote is from the May 2 statement by The Future of (Guest) Work Migrant Women Delegation:
“We’re farm workers, crab pickers and cruise ship workers. We’re chocolate packers, engineers, veterinarians, nurses and teachers from all around the world. We are united by our motivation, yearn for knowledge and commitment to creating change in our communities. We stand with guest-worker women from around the world to ensure that the policies that affect us reflect our experiences.”
