Labor History Research Topics
To promote the study of the state's Labor History, LHA will identify topics from across the state that students and teachers alike can explore to learn about the lives of the state's workers on and off the job. Throughout the state, from Greenwich to Grosvenordale, from Sharon to Stonington, there were factory buildings large and small where people worked to put food on the table, roofs over their heads, and raise their families ... and sometimes clashed with owners to for living wages and benefits.
A good place to begin your research is the websiter "Historic Mills of Connecticut." https://connecticutmills.org/. This comprehensive index of Connecticut mills can help you identify subjects for research.
