« Working people screwed: How 2013 is Just Like 1913 | Main | Political Stalemate: How 2013 is Just Like 1913 »



I am sure this paragraph has touched all the internet people, its really really fastidious paragraph on building up new webpage.

D. P. Lubic

If 1913 is the pattern you say it is, we are in for a heap of trouble. I'm thinking of the violence that accompanied labor unions (see the film "Matewan," by John Sayles, for a glimpse of what that was like), of the long struggles, of the people who went to jail, of people who were beaten, shot, bombed (Walter Reuther, United Auto Workers president, he and his brother both nearly died)--and I think all this took place between about 1900 (or, if you go back to the first national labor uprising, 1877), with final "victory" not coming until, what, the 1950s? Of even the chance for victory not coming until legislation permitting collective bargaining was signed in the 1930s? How long do we have to wait around this time?
