I’ve shared a book from Google Play Books

There is Power in a Union, Philip Dray.

economic recession. When Lynn factories announced wage cuts, the shoemakers proposed instead a mutually governed work stoppage, in which the factories would contribute financially to the subsistence of idle employees while the businesses reconstituted their operations and sold off their sizable inventories. Owners backed away from any such pact, and instead began running their plants at reduced pay rates. Outraged workers saw an effort to degrade permanently the wages paid shoemakers in Lynn and declared a strike, demanding a standardized wage.

Thanks. God bless.
