For decades, rumors have circulated about a strike in space. The story goes that in 1973, the three astronauts on the Skylab 4 mission took an unplanned day off to protest ground controls management style, and the job action resulted in improved working conditions. It's a great story, but according to crew member Ed Gibson, that's not exactly what happened. Reporter Meagan Day says the real story is still a testament to the potential of strikes — or even just the threat of strikes — to shift the balance of power in the workplace. She wrote about it in Jacobin last month and brings us her report today. MULTIVERSE composed & produced by SutheeComposer.
And on this week’s Labor History in 2:00…
The year was 1969. That was the day hospital workers in Charleston, South Carolina won union recognition.
