Lunch and Learn: Working in McLean County presented by Mike Matejka


Lunch and Learn: Working in McLean County presented by Mike Matejka
Thu Oct 12 12:10:00 2017
McLean County changed dramatically when the railroad arrived in the 1850s, particularly as small businesses grew larger. The 19th and early 20th century saw real contests as the economic system changed and workers spoke up for their rights. Mike Matejka, Governmental Affairs Director, Great Plains Laborers’ District Council and editor of Grand Prairie Union News, will discuss how this contest played out in Bloomington-Normal and how working people organized to improve their conditions.
