[Unlocked] Apr 13, 2021 – The Adamson Act – Arsenal For Democracy Ep. 365

Due to the current (September 2022) threat of a US rail strike and in conjunction with a new episode forthcoming, we are unlocking from our Patreon our episode on the 1916 Adamson Act that created the eight-hour railroad work day and the Supreme Court ruling on it that seems to be a strange outlier in the Lochner Era. (Bill and Rachel)
