On This Day in 1963

President John F. Kennedy is assassinated. Generally considered a friend of labor, Kennedy a year earlier had issued Executive Order 10988, which authorized unionization and a limited form of collective bargaining rights for most federal workers (excluding the Department of Defense). Many states followed the example set by Kennedy.

Minimum Wage: Who Decided Workers Should Fall Behind?
Updated On: Mar 06, 2013

Feb. 25, 2013 | WORKERS' RIGHTS | The federal minimum wage was first put in place in 1938. From that year until 1968 when its value peaked, the purchasing power of the minimum wage increased by more than 140%.
