Today in Labor History

Aug. 20, 1986
Deranged relief postal service carrier Patrick “Crazy Pat” Henry Sherrill shoots and kills 14 co-workers, and wounds another six, before killing himself at an Edmond, Oklahoma, postal facility.

The incident inspired the objectionable term “going postal.”

And they reduce gender and racial wage gaps across industries, which contributes to broader equality in society… The New York Times
