My sister just sent me a birthday message 81 with this link attached. I watched troops going up and down Poland Ave protecting Lake Hamilton Dam during the strike in 1937. I also watched "Sit Down" strikers throwing rocks through windows in the mill and at 6 years of age thought it was terrible. Later I worked in the Sheet and Tube, Open Hearth plant one summer and saw how terrible the equipment was we were given to use and it changed my mind.OSHA did not come around until much later. Only good thing about living in Struthers was the wind blew most of the dust and soot away from us towards Campbell
