Back To the Future: Workers Fight For Better Pay AND Shorter hours

With jobs being sent off-shore to cheaper labor markets, with robots doing some of the work of manufacturing, with women entering the paid labor force, it takes two incomes for a family to flourish. While wages stopped rising in 1975, productivity rose, slowly at first and then exponentially until the income gap between rich and poor is wider now than before the 1929 Great Depression. This is no accident; it is the way capitalism works. Income gap grows until the people who do the production of goods and services rebel and make demands on higher wages and fewer hours.
