Here’s today's labor history:
On this date in 1869, one of the worst disasters in the history of U.S. anthracite mining occurred at the Avondale Mine, near Scranton, Pennsylvania, when a fire roared up mineshaft, killing 110 miners.
Today’s labor quote is by Mother Jones, who said:
“Life comes to the miners out of their deaths, and death out of their lives.”
