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.
