On Labor Day, museum remembers strike

September 5, 2011

WOONSOCKET — For most people, Labor Day is a last call for summer, a chance for one more family cookout or that final great day at the beach.
But at the city’s Museum of Work And Culture, the holiday was another chance to remember a difficult period of local history, a national textile worker’s strike that came to town in early September 1934 and claimed the lives of two city men in the process.
As part of its Labor Day Open House 2011 program, the Museum staged two performances of Raymond H. Bacon’s short play about the strike and its local aftermath.
