Labor in Schools
LES staff are working to create curriculum on labor topics for use in classrooms, such as the recently launched website of materials on the 1934 Minneapolis Teamster strikes, www.minneapolis1934.org
"Who Built Our Capitol? The Lives and Work of the Men and Women Who Built the Minnesota State Capitol Building" is a project of the Labor Education Service at the University of Minnesota. For the past four years, a team assembled by LES staff member Randy Croce has been researching the workers and contractors involved in the Capitol construction from 1896-1907. "Who Built Our Capitol?" reached a major milestone with the launch of a 46-minute video documentary, website, and a Facebook page.
