THE STRIKERS

A story cross sectioning the lives of factory workers on strike. Probably not in a southern town, though the town is not identifiable. Shifting pictures of behind the scene in the lives of the men, whose gesture towards defiance is stalemated by the employers closing down the plant and departing. Too much on the sentimental side to class with usual proletarian literature, and in the main against the strike makers. More human interest than propaganda. Recalls in tempo, Leane Zugsmith's A Time To Remember, which told the story of a department store strike.
