Labor History in 2:00

December 14 - Austerity No More - Workers Strike Back

December 14, 2019

On this day in labor history the year was 1990.  That was the day that 20,000 workers in the city of Fez in the North African country of Morocco went out on strike. Austerity measures had hit the country’s working people hard during the 1980's.  A drought had made the situation even worse.
