    It's very, very important that we not forget WHY people were willing to fight and die for better working conditions.

    "Right to work" versus "right to live" - what a great comparison!

      All credit for the comparison goes to Mary Heaton Vorse. Who stood side by side with the Strikers and faced the bullets with them.
