Sorry to have so many Pittsburgh-centric stories posted at once, but this one is pretty interesting.
Historians, labor folks, and activists in the Pittsburgh area will be commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Pressed Steel Car Strike on Saturday, where at least 12 people died in 1909.
There were several articles about the strike and its implications in Sunday’s Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Read about the day’s activities, including a church service, march, marker unveiling, and concert with the Springsteen-esque Mike Stout and the Human Union here.
