On This Day in Economic History
On this day in 1894 workers for the Pullman Palace Car Company went on strike to protest wage reduction. This strike received national attention and drew famous names such as Eugene Debs and Samuel Gompers to sympathize with the workers' plight. However, the Pullman company had support from state and federal troops. The strike reached its climax in July when gunfights between troops and strikers left 34 men dead. Afterwards the violence in the strike died out, leaving the strikers jobless.
