Today in Labor History

May 25, 1936
The notorious 11-month Remington Rand strike begins. The strike spawned the "Mohawk Valley (N.Y.) formula," described by investigators as a corporate plan to discredit union leaders, frighten the public with the threat of violence, employ thugs to beat up strikers, and other tactics. The National Labor Relations Board termed the formula "a battle plan for industrial war".

Repeal the Sequester: It is Dumb and Damaging
Updated On: May 03, 2013

Spurred by the anger of the moneyed class, it took only four days for the supposedly gridlocked Congress to "circumvent" the sequester for airline passengers…. It's no secret that when money talks, Congress listens. What is incredible is that Congress seems intent on driving this economy back into recession, which will lead to more unemployment and spreading misery. Read the full story here.
