LGM Film Club, Part 136: Women Must Weep


In 1956, workers at a plant in Princeton, Indiana went on strike. They were organized with the International Association of Machinists. In response, the National Right to Work Committee created a movie about the evil of unions, the need for Christians to defend themselves against the outside evil, and of course the right to work. It’s utterly astounding, both in the complete lies it told about this strike and the laughably awful acting. This is quite a document of sheer hackery. And yet, this thing was shown during employers’ anti-union campaigns for over 20 years. In fact, the NLRB nullified a 1963 union election because the employer showed this trash to the workers beforehand.
