Industrial Domination, Worker Exploitation, and Union Suppression: How FDR Saved the United States from a Red Revolution


WHO: R.S. Sukle is the daughter of a coal miner and union organizer. She is a native of Russellton, Pa, the first town to face evictions during the 1927-28 coal mining strike, and now lives in Virginia. Inspired by her father’s life as a social activist, Sukle has spent a good part of her writing career delving into the study of labor history.

WHAT: Sukle’s new book, Blood on the Constitution shows how three administrations of one party government, dominated by big business, used their powers to suppress the union movement of industrial workers. Written to mirror her father’s life as a social activist and union organizer for the United Mine Workers, Blood on the Constitution reveals a shocking history censored into obscurity-- a story of civil rights abuses and horrific sacrifices by industrial slaves for a labor union.

If not for the rank and file who stood up against poor wages and employee treatment, we’d still have unsafe workplaces, twelve hour days, and short paychecks. Forget about social security, workman’s compensation, overtime pay benefits, or holidays.

WHEN: Ms. Sukle is available for interviews upon request. Her book is available for review.
