New York, New York - Kept Press Mocks Mother Jones, Strike Remains Strong
The strike of garment workers in New York City remains strong despite the efforts of the Kept Press to discredit Mother Jones, play up the discontent of a few strikers, and advertise scab products. Efforts by the International Ladies Garment Workers Union to successfully conclude the strike continue unabated.
From Ohio's Wilmington Daily News of February 16, 1916:
WAIST MAKERS RECEIVING AID
Mother Jones Appeals To Strike Breakers in New York
But Her Efforts Are Fruitless
New York, Feb. 16-Mother Jones made a whirlwind chase about the city to induce strikebreakers taking the places of the waistmakers and children's dressmakers who are on strike to walk out of the shops. She was accompanied by a committee of the Women's Trades Union league, but failed to induce any to them to join her cause. Charles L. Berman, secretary of the strike committee, said that 7,000 workers returned to their places, their employers having acceded to the unions demands.-----
