Today in Labor History
Today in labor history, August 19, 1916:  Strikebreakers, hired by mill owner Neil Jamison, attack and beat picketing shingle mill workers in Everett, Washington.  Local police did nothing, on the grounds that the location of the mill was outside their jurisdiction; they did, however, intervene when the striking workers retaliated later that evening.
