Wisconsin Farmers Strike, May 24, 1933 On October 21, 1933: In an attempt to raise the price of milk, Wisconsin dairy farmers begin the third major milk strike of the year in the state. During the Great Depression, farmers who produced milk for bottling were able to remain solvent, but those who produced milk for cheese, butter, and other uses were driven into poverty. The initial strike involved farmers primarily in Rusk, Price Shawano counties. (via Today in Labor History, on Tumblr)
