In today’s labor history, on this date in 2013, teachers in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – on strike since early August over proposed wage cuts and loss of job security – occupied the City Council chambers before a vote on the proposed plan. A series of further actions led to an agreement that included raises for the teachers, a review of workload and curriculum requirements, and the reinstatement of all teachers who had been fired during the strike.

"Rome wasn't built in a day, but man, did they get a break on the labor."
