Today in Labor History
Mar. 26, 1868: San Francisco brewery workers begin a 9-month strike as local employers follow the union-busting lead of the National Brewers Association and fire their unionized workers, replacing them with scabs. Two unionized brewers refused to go along, kept producing beer, prospered wildly and induced the Association to capitulate. A contract benefit since having unionized two years earlier, certainly worth defending: free beer.

At McDonald's, Wage Theft is Just Another Managerial Task
Updated On: Apr 02, 2014
April 2, 2014  | WAR ON WORKERS |  It's closing time at McDonald's, and in addition to mopping the floors and closing out the registers, apparently one other important task helps keep this multibillion-dollar company running cheaply and efficiently. "Oh, we've got to adjust labor"… as in bump hours into the next pay period to avoid paying overtime. Adjust labor, as in change clock-in and clock-out times to shorten workers' hours. Adjust labor, as in reduce earnings to keep the payroll for a low-wage workforce at the bare minimum—and often below the minimum wage. Adjust labor, or, to use another term, commit wage theft. Full story at takepart.com.
