1934 – the year of the strike

In 1934, the labor movement in the United States was at a low ebb; the Knights of Labor and Industrial Workers of the World had been smashed earlier in the century, and the CIO had yet to make an appearance. But that year, four major strikes occurred that had an impact on the labor movement for years to come:

The Auto-Lite strike in Dayton, Ohio
The west coast waterfront strike
The Minneapolis general strike
The textile workers strike

We'll review the history of these four strikes and discuss the lessons they may hold for today's labor movement.
