Myra Wolfgang, "The Battling Belle of Detroit"

The Jewish Historical Society of Michigan (JHSM) describes Myra Wolfgang as one of the nation’s first women union organizers. A child of Eastern European immigrants, Wolfgang was training at art school during the Great Depression when she had to turn to labor organizing out of necessity. Wolfgang played critical roles in the Woolworths' strike, in several organizing drives throughout Detroit's service industries, and eventually Michigan's first minimum wage law. We are blessed to stand on her shoulders.
