    Today in Labor History
    Jan. 27, 1969

    Cool labor book: ‘A People’s History of the United States’
    Jan. 3, 2017 | If your last serious read of American history was in high school – or even in a standard college course – you’ll want to read this amazing account of America as seen through the eyes of its working people, women and minorities.
