Today in Labor History

Labor history is OUR history.

Today in Labor History is all about helping to bring those stories to light.

The marchers also demanded civil rights, fair trade, workplace safety, and attention to the nation’s decaying cities and infrastructure.

  1. As a new subscsriber, I’d like to suggest that you add source information for the graphics used.

  2. We need more grassroots demonstrations now, in 2014!! We should follow A. Phillip Randolf’s model and organize a Labor March on Washington 2015.
