“Come all of you good workers, / Good news to you I'll tell / Of how the good old union / Has come in here to dwell. / Which side are you on?”

They were one of the most effective organizing tools because they captured the spiritual, emotional, and physical feelings of people who were dying of starvation while they fought some of the bloodiest battles union organizing has ever known.”
