FRI.JULY 11 on CATALYST: One Day In July: 1934 Strike 80 years On

In 1934, the Teamsters in Minneapolis went on strike and decades of struggle resulted in unions gaining a foothold that built the middle-class. On July 12th ONE DAY IN JULY, a "festival of labor" celebrates the 80th anniverary of those events and imagines what a 21st century labor movement will be. A conversation with JIM MCGUIRE and LINDA LEIGHTON, two of the organziers of ONE DAY IN JULY. Look for One Day in July on Facebook for details of music and speakers.
