    In the nation’s first general strike for a 10-hour day, 300 armed Irish longshoremen marched through the streets of Philadelphia calling on other workers to join them. Some 20,000 did, from clerks to bricklayers to city employees and other occupations. The city announced a 10-hour workday within the week; private employers followed suit three weeks later – 1835

  • HASC Markup
    Posted On: May 11, 2018

    All

    Below are the 2 amendments to the 2019 NDAA that Shea-porter put forward during markup on Wednesday. Both passed as part of a package of amendments agreed upon by both the majority and minority members of the personnel subcommittee prior to markup. So there was no debate during the markup hearing.

    Even though Dan and I worked closely with Shea-Porter’s staff on the amendment language I am still nervous about the actual language of the amendments that is in the markup. Once the Full HASC report is published we will know more.

    I will be working the Senate personnel subcommittee members staffs leading up to the SASC markup on the 23rd in an attempt to get the language into the SASC markup.

    Although this language is now in the HASC markup it still must survive when the 2019 NDAA goes to the full House for debate, amendments and a final vote. I am sure allies of NGB in Congress may try and get these amendments stricken from the final bill. So our work is not done in the House yet either.
