A startlingly realistic program recreates the bloody strike at the Carnegie Street Company in 1892 through the experiences of an Irish labor organizer and a Slav coal heaver. From the stark portrayals of the workers’ living and working conditions to their final dramatic stand against overwhelming odds at Andrew Carnegie’s Homestead plant, the film relates a chapter in the history of organized labor. An LCA release.
