Mr. Goland, I hate living in your company town. Pullman, Ilinois is dangerous and in a depression.
Mr. Joseph, either get over it or I will hire a scab! I will put you on the blacklist if you try anything funny.
You only pay me $400 per year and I work 14 hours a day. My son, Mr. Hankey, who is only 6 years old even has to work. That is child labor!
Take some scrip for the company store. No raise, we are in the depressed section of the business cycle.
Hey I'm Lucky, the new immigrant from Ireland!
Work is awful here due to safety hazards and real wages. Let's start a Labor Union!
Yeah! But only with Irish immigrants or diversity will break up the group.
There is a lockout at the factory and I am cutting your wages like the four Eastern Railroad Companies.
We are not collective bargaining! We are joining the 1877 Railroad Strike!
A labor union in Pullman has gotten out of control. They destroyed over half the company's freight cars. I declare, as President Hayes, we send in federal troops in order to tame the situation.
