Here’s today's labor history:
On this date in 1934, the Battle of Rincon Hill took place during the West Coast Longshoremen's Strike in San Francisco. Some 5,000 strikers fought 1,000 police, scabs and national guardsmen. Two strikers were killed, and 109 people were injured. The incident, forever known as "Bloody Thursday," led to a general strike.
Today’s labor quote is by an Aboriginal wise woman, who said:
"If you come only to help me, you can go back home. But if you consider my struggle as part of your struggle for survival, then maybe we can work together."
