Forbes - - LEADERBOARD -

Strik­ing out

with fears of com­mu­nism and la­bor prob­lems high in the wake of the rus­sian rev­o­lu­tion, Forbes spot­lighted “John (a brick­layer) and mary, his wife, in their cozy [pitts­burgh] home.” John be­longed to a union, lo­cal no. 0964. but mary wasn’t a fan, telling her hus­band, “if you and all your friends . . . [don’t] change your tune from ‘strike. strike. striKe’ to ‘work! work! worK!’ in mighty quick or­der, we sure will starve.”
