The internationally famous ‘Bread and Roses’ strike at Lawrence, Massachusetts
in 1912, needs little introduction to anyone who has studied labour history, for it
has rightly gained a legendary place in the pantheon of industrial conflict. Here
was a strike by 25,000 badly paid, essentially female, immigrant textile workers,
drawn from twenty-four countries, who fought against wage reductions arising
from their hours of work being reduced as a result of legislation in Massachusetts.
