Inhaltsangabe: In the summer of 1894, employees of Pullman Palace Car Company near Chicago decided they were fed up with their work conditions, including reduced wages. The laborers went on strike, refusing to go to work. Railroad workers from across the country joined the strike to show their support. This action shut down the railroads across the Midwest and beyond. The Pullman Strike helped some business and government leaders see that workers? concerns were important and deserved to be addressed.
