Today's Labor History

This week's Labor History Today podcast: [link removed] Who belongs in the labor movement? Last week's show: [link removed] Pride on the line.

In one of the U.S. auto industry's more embarrassing missteps over the last half-century, the Ford Motor Co. decides to name their new model the Edsel, after Henry Ford's only son. Ford executives rejected 18,000 other potential names - 1956

President Franklin D. Roosevelt announces plans for the Civil Works Administration to create four million additional jobs for the Depression-era unemployed. The workers ultimately laid 12 million feet of sewer pipe and built or made substantial improvements to 255,000 miles of roads, 40,000 schools, 3,700 playgrounds, and nearly 1,000 airports (not to mention 250,000 outhouses still badly needed in rural America) - 1933 photo: Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) workers dig a channel to drain agricultural fields.

20,000 workers, black and white, stage general strike in New Orleans, demanding union recognition and hour and wage gains - 1892
