Loray Mill Strike Commemorated

http://76.12.72.97/wfae/audio/LM20071212.mp3

A historical highway marker is going up in Gastonia to commemorate a labor dispute that turned violent. The 1929 Loray Mill Strike was far from the bloodiest of the largest strike in U.S. history, but a world audience took note of the city's disgrace. WFAE's Lisa Miller revisits a part of Gastonia's history that many people in the local community have tried to forget.
