    Today in Labor History

    On this date in 1886, the Haymarket massacre took place. A bomb was thrown as Chicago police started to break up a rally for strikers at the McCormick Harvesting Machine Co. A riot erupted, and 11 police and strikers died, mostly from gunfire, and scores more were injured.
