For Labor Day here is a set of mills and mill workers from Fall River, Mass. It doesn’t seem that long ago when a “factory outlet” meant walking along a path through the shop floor to a back room full of seconds. All the time while proud members of the International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union (ILGWU) made the clothing we all wore.
A jury in Fall River, Mass., found former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez guilty of first-degree murder in death of Odin Lloyd. Hernandez, 25, faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison without parole for the conviction. He was also found guilty of weapons and ammunition charges. - The Boston Globe
