Four women stripped and spanked by striking garment workers at Dallas plants
Four Policemen and Two Women Hurt As Rioting Breaks Out Again With Merchants On Hand to Buy Merchandise.
DALLAS, Aug. 7. -- (AP) -- Four women were stripped naked and
spanked here today by striking women garment workers in riots in
front of two dress manufacturing plants. Four policemen and two
women were injured, neither of them strikers.
Strike Six Months Old
The strike began six months ago. The women, who walked out of all 13 dress manufacturing plants here, demanded higher wages, shorter hours and union recognition.
The first month or so there were several minor riots, and fights, staged as the women who refused to strike and who took the strikers' places arrived for work. Each plant has been picketed most of the time since the strike, and in addition, Dallas stores selling clothing manufactured by the thirteen plants have been picketed as "unfair."
