Today in Labor History
Today in labor history, July 5, 1934:  5,000 workers fight 1,000 police, scabs, and National Guard troops as employers try to break the longshore strike in San Francisco.  Two strikers were killed, 109 people injured.  The incident, known as “Bloody Thursday,” led to a general strike.  The longshore strike was eventually arbitrated and the workers won their major demands.
