Here’s today's labor history:
On this date in 1933, six days into a cotton field strike by 18,000 Mexican and Mexican-American workers in Pixley, California, four strikers were killed and six wounded; eight growers were indicted and charged with murder.
Today’s labor quote is by Caroline Decker, a labor organizer in the 1920s and 1930s across the United States, who said:
“…it was very hard for so many people; really rough. People today have no idea how much better it now is, and how many heads were cracked to get it.”
