Mourn for the dead, fight like hell for the living!
Play • 30 min

April 28 is a National Day of Mourning, or Workers Memorial Day, observed in over 100 countries around the world. From the On the Line: Stories of BC Workers podcast, we bring you the story of Bea Zucco, a third generation pioneer from Grand Forks, British Columbia and a miner's wife. Ordinary in so many ways, and yet absolutely extraordinary in her determination to see justice prevail and secure a pension for her silicosis-stricken husband. On today’s Labor History in 2: UAW Mobilizes Against Taft-Hartley
