Today in Labor History

Oct. 17, 1950
"Salt of the Earth" strike begins by the mostly Mexican-American members of Mine, Mill and Smelter Workers Union Local 890 in Bayard, N.M. Strikers' wives walked picket lines for seven months when their husbands were enjoined during the 14-month strike against the New Jersey Zinc Co. A great movie, see it!

Baltimore's Democratic City Council kills $15 minimum wage bill, for now
Aug. 17, 2016 | The Baltimore City Council derailed a proposed increase in the minimum wage to $15 an hour Monday, highlighting the ambivalence among many Democratic Party leaders over whether to support the national Fight for $15 movement.

The maneuver appears to have effectively killed the bill, at least for this year. inthesetimes.com
