The Great Railroad Strike of 1877 The Great Railroad Strike of 1877 began on July 7, 1877 in Martinsburg, West Virginia. Workers became angry when the company had reduced their wages for the second time within the previous year. “The strikers refused to let the trains run until the most recent pay cut was returned to the employees” (“Great Railroad Strike of 1877”). The decrease in wages was a result of the economy’s recent downfall.

Canadian National Railway Company- Shares of Canadian National Railway (NYSE: CNI) have risen about 20% to the current level of $57.02 from its 52 weeks low of $47.62 on January 20, 2016.

Canadian National’s revenue rose 4% to C$12.6 billion, whereas Canadian Pacific saw its revenue growing by just 1% for the fiscal year 2015.
