March is Women's History Month.

The textile industry was the first to become mechanized and working conditions were harsh. Young women recruited off the farms worked 70 hours and six days a week. When wages were cut the workers walked out.

 In this program, we will learn about the Luddites—the machine-breakers who rejected the regimentation of the factory system and the working conditions of the early industrial era.

Presented by Rick Feingold who teaches American Business History at Bergen Community College and holds a degree in History from Rutgers University.
