During a severe depression (the Panic of 1893), the Pullman Palace Car Company cut wages as revenue dropped so 4,000 Pullman factory workers went on strike demanding higher wages, lower rent, and better working conditions. The company owner, George Pullman, refused or go to arbitration. President Grover Cleveland deployed 12,000 troops to break the strike; 30 strikers were killed and 57 were wounded. Cleveland designated Labor Day as a federal holiday 6 days after he quashed the strike.
