Today in Labor History
Mar. 5, 1770: British soldiers, quartered in the homes of colonists, took the jobs of working people when jobs were scarce. On this date, grievances of rope makers against the soldiers led to a fight. Soldiers shot down Crispus Attucks, a black colonist, then others, in what became known as the Boston Massacre. Attucks is considered the first casualty in the American Revolution.?

Posted On: Apr 01, 2014
April 1, 2014 | LABOR HISTORY | The 1960s struggle of migrant farmworkers in California played out against many other political movements of the time. Long hours, brutal conditions and lower-than-minimum wages provided the impetus for the great grape strike and boycott, centered in Delano, Calif. The campaign, led by Chavez and Dolores Huerta, the co-founders of the National Farm Workers Association, lasted more than five years and involved hundreds of miles-long marches, nearly month-long hunger strikes and brutal police violence.
