Article The Great Round World and What's Going On In It magazine--Anonymous author
News comes from Hamburg that the strike of the dock laborers is over.
The strikers have been beaten because of their lack of money.
In No. 7 of The Great Round World you will find an account of the strike, and if you will also refer to No. 10, you will see that it was thought that the strikers could not hold out very much longer.
The money the strikers expected to receive from other labor unions to help them was so slow in coming that the men and their families were in want, and no man is likely to stand out for the benefit of others when his own children are suffering from cold and hunger.
The men have gone back to their old employers and asked for work. The pity of it all is, however, that during the strike others have been taken on in their places, and the employers have now no work to give them.
After holding out since the end of October, and refusing the masters' offer to give them $1.10 a day, and let all future troubles be settled by arbitration, the strikers have had to give in without gaining a single point. It is very sad.
According to this selection, if readers want to gather more information to determine whether or not the labor strike should have taken place, where should they look?
