Mother Jones, May 19, 2012
This crossword is based on Mother Jones: The Most Dangerous Woman in America by Linda Atkinson. Mary Harris Jones was a fearless woman who dedicated most of her life to helping workers to organize for better pay and working conditions. A very important figure in the development of a middle class in the US, and yet, I was not taught about her in school. Reading the book is a little depressing, because there are so many parallels with what is happening now regarding workers vs employers. The difference is people now are afraid to stand up for their rights.
