Show Summary Details


This chapter gives a detailed account of the continuing Passaic Textile Strike. Keeping the strike before the American public was a key strategy of the Passaic strikers. They enlisted the support of a variety of journalists, representing national and New York City publications, to spread their message. They also published their own account of the strike, titled Hell in New Jersey—Story of the Passaic Textile Strike, and they produced a silent documentary motion picture—Passaic Textile Strike: Organizing the Unorganized. Both were distributed widely during the strike.
