Labor History in 2:00

January 4 - Rehabilitation, Not Humiliation

January 4, 2020

On this day in Labor History the year was 1965. That was the day that 8,000 social workers went on strike in New York City.  For twenty-eight days that bitter cold January these workers marched on the picket lines. They were members of AFSCME District Council 37 union and the Social Service Employees Union.
