Summary
"The Depression brought unprecedented changes for American workers and organized labor. As the economy plummeted, employers cut wages and laid off workers, while simultaneously attempting to wrest more work from those who remained employed. In mills, mines, and factories, workers organized and resisted, striking for higher wages, improved working conditions, and the right to bargain collectively. As workers walked the picket line or sat down on the shop floor, they could be heard singing. This book examines the songs they sang at three different strikes - the Gastonia, North Carolina, textile mill strike (1929), Harlan County, Kentucky coal mining strike (1931-32), and Flint, Michigan automobile sit down strike (1936-37)."--Jacket
