Today in Labor History
Today in labor history, October 3, 1967: Folk singer-songwriter Woody Guthrie dies at the age of 55 from complications due to Huntington’s disease. Many of Guthrie’s songs were born from his experiences and his travels with migrant workers during the Great Depression. “I am out to sing songs that will prove to you that this is your world,” he said. “I am out to sing songs that make you take pride in yourself and your work.”
