Today in Labor History (1)

It’s “White Shirt Day” at United Auto Workers. Today marks the anniversary of the 1937 sit-down strike that gave union bargaining rights at the automaker. The mission was to send a message that “blue collar” workers deserve the same respect as their management counterparts. Don’t get your shirt any dirtier than the boss gets his.
