On this date in 1918, textile mill owners in India locked out their workers over a cost-of-living wage dispute. Indian independence leader Mohandas K. Gandhi proposed a compromise and began his first “fast unto death,” which lasted for four days until the mill owners agreed to arbitration.
Today’s labor quote is by Mohandas K. Gandhi, now known as Mahatma Gandhi, who said
"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."
