As profits and the cost of living rose so did labor's demand for its share. The spring of 1941 was a time of labor strife. Violence occurred at the Ford River Rouge plant, Bethlehem Steel, and International Harvester, and in Harlan County, Kentucky. By April the strike at Allis-Chalmers, a key machinery manufacturer, was entering its third month.
