Today in Labor History

Labor history is OUR history

July 3, 1901

James E. Bailey at the Good Morning Mine

Striking hard rock miners in Telluride, Colorado, confront scabs at the mine. A gun battle ensued, resulting in three deaths and six injuries. Later that day, the striking miners rounded up the scabs and ordered them to leave the county. The strike was settled three days later when the mine owners agreed the miners’ demands for $3/day and an eight-hour day.
