On This Day in 1918
Eighty-six passengers on a train carrying members of the Hagenbeck-Wallace Circus are killed, another 127 injured in a wreck near Hammond, Indiana. Five days later the dead are buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in Forest Park, Ill., in an area set aside as Showmen’s Rest, purchased only a few months earlier by the Showmen’s League of America. ~ DC Labor

    Teamsters 30th Convention opens Tuesday, June 22
    June 21, 2021 The International Brotherhood of Teamsters 30th Convention opens tomorrow, and this year’s event will be like no other Convention in the union’s 118-year-old history. This 30th Convention will be online. Planning has taken place over the past year and a determination about the format had to be made by January 1 of this year, when no in-person, large-scale events were taking place. Guests speakers will include President Biden and former President Bill Clinton; Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau; and, international and U.S. labor leaders. Delegates will view the Convention on a special platform, and an app has been created to follow the events. For officer campaign election campaign info, convention committee reports, five-year reports, and proposed resolutions, or view convention videos and visit the convention store, register on the convention website here.

    Maryland governor ending COVID-19 state of emergency July 1
    June 16, 2021 Maryland will end a state of emergency for COVID-19 on July 1, Gov. Larry Hogan announced Tuesday. The governor made the announcement as health metrics continue to improve in the state. “Masks or face coverings will not be required in any settings anywhere, including schools, camps, and child care facilities," Hogan said. “If you have been vaccinated, you are safe, but those who have not gotten vaccinated will continue to be at risk." But restaurants, venues, and other businesses and workplaces may continue to require them. Update 6/17: Baltimore will follow the state and end both its state of emergency and mask mandates on July 1.

    Why Was the Minimum Wage First Established?
    June 21, 2021 | LABOR HISTORY | The minimum wage was conceived as a way to help bolster wageworkers and decrease class stratification.

The first outcome of increased minimum wages is that the cost of producing goods and services increases, which results in higher prices. These increased prices mean that everyone is paying more for goods, including the middle and upper classes, yet only the lower class is… History News Network
