Title

Forging the Copper Collar: Arizona's Labor-Management War of 1901-1921

Description

Byrkit’s account of the growing conflict between the copper companies and the unions, which included a chapter of the then-powerful Industrial Workers of the World, known as the “Wobblies,” does not mince words: the companies were the bad guys, the workers were the losers. While the deportation is the focal event, this book is a place to begin understanding the labor-management politics of Arizona for the entire twentieth century.
