Today in Labor History

Aug. 20, 1986
Deranged relief postal service carrier Patrick “Crazy Pat” Henry Sherrill shoots and kills 14 co-workers, and wounds another six, before killing himself at an Edmond, Oklahoma, postal facility. Supervisors had ignored warning signs of Sherrill’s instability, investigators later found; the shootings came a day after he had been reprimanded for poor work. The incident inspired the objectionable term “going postal.”

‘Green New Deal’ Aims to Remake the U.S. Economy
Posted On: Feb 08, 2019
Feb. 8, 2019 | ECONOMY | […] In very broad strokes, the Green New Deal resolution introduced yesterday by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey, (D-MA), sets goals for some drastic measures to cut carbon emissions across the economy, from electricity generation to transportation to agriculture. In the process, it aims to create jobs and boost the economy. The bill calls for a “10-year national mobilizations” toward accomplishing the goals. The resolution also states that the Deal “must be developed through . . . partnership with frontline and vulnerable communities, labor unions, worker cooperatives [and others]” and must ensure the creation of “high-quality union jobs,” guaranteed jobs “with a family-sustaining wage,” and strengthen and protect “the right of all workers to organize, unionize, and collectively bargain free of coercion, intimidation, and harassment.” National Public Radio
