Teamster Rebellion: How socialists organized the 1934 strike

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Despite high expectations and increased militancy among workers right after WWI, the Depression era to follow was marked by state repression and vicious attacks on working people. Unemployment was high, wages were slashed and unionization rates were low. Yet, as the economy began to pick up, so did the rank-and-file struggle. The Teamster rebellion in 1934 was one of a new wave of activity, giving workers renewed hope and determination that the fight was long from over.
