Labor History Talks

Nov 17 2021 • 30 mins

In that town called San Diego, when the workers try to talk, The cops will smash them with a sap and tell them, "Take a walk!" They throw them in a bull-pen and they feed them rotten beans, And they call that law and order in that city; so it seems The Little Red Songbook's "We're Bound For San Diego" (1912) This session of Labor History Talks was recorded on November 17, 2021.
