The strike of the Amalgamated Clothing Workers in Chicago, October-December 1915, was a fine piece of human effort. To rate it at its true value it is necessary to turn back to a brief view of the strike of United Garment Workers in 1910-1911. 2 That was more like a peasant's uprising than a modern strike. The workers were practically unorganized until after they came out. Although the movement out of the factories began spontaneously, eight or ten weeks passed before as many workers were out and organized as came out in perfect order and organization in two weeks last October.
