How Did The Washerwomen Strike Unfair

100 Words1 Page
I was surprised too of how much clothe they wash for so little pay that they receive for it. I understand why they did the strike it was unfair to get pay that they were bing pay. When they strike “They sought higher pay, respect and autonomy over their work and established a uniform rate at $1 per dozen pounds of wash” (Atlanta’s Washerwomen Strike). Now a days it does not seem like a lot of money but back then it was better than what they were getting pay. They deserve better pay because what they do its hard work.
