Today: 75 years since original Occupy (video)

Today is "White Shirt Day," the anniversary of the Flint sit down strike settlement. The UAW tells us:
Known as "White Shirt Day," Feb. 11 marks the 75th anniversary of the most famous of these sit-down actions, the 1936-1937 General Motors Flint Sit-Down Strike. Men and women throughout the UAW wear white-collar attire traditionally donned by management to remember the sacrifices and victories of workers.
