Episode Description:

Politically, the Labor Movement has taken a big hit here in the beginning of the 21st Century. However, if we take a moment and look back over time, the working conditions we enjoy today are a direct result of working men and women organizing for a shorter work day, better pay, safer working conditions all as they propelled America forward in its journey towards industrialization. It was a difficult journey, so join us as we take a look back at America's early labor movement here in the Blackstone Valley. Enjoy the music of PENDRAGON as they convert the labor marching song "Eight Hours" into our music background for this episode of Along the Blackstone.
