Today in labor history March 08

March 08

Thousands of New York needle trades workers demonstrate for higher wages, shorter workday, and end to child labor. The demonstration became the basis for International Womens Day - 1908

New York members of the Fur and Leather Workers Union, many of them women, strike. Despite beatings by police, they persevere, winning a 10 percent wage increase and five-day work week - 1926

The Norris-LaGuardia Anti-Injunction Act took effect on this day. It limits the ability of federal judges to issue injunctions against workers and unions involved in labor disputes - 1932
