Ford Strike, Walkout April, 1941 221689-29

You'll see strike breakers trying to convince the membership that having a union wasn't a good idea. It was a lot more physical back then.

1. Wasn't this around the time some Pinkerton thugs shot a few workers dead?

That's why my father always said he would never buy a Ford.

2. Roughly yes.

I think it might have been a few years earlier and I also think it was police shooting strikers in the back at the factory. But thank god those people have Governor supporting their right "not to organize."
