program date: 
Tue, 02/02/2016
Old Mole and labor historian, Norm Diamond, offers some critical history surrounding the namesake of a hip new bar in Portland, Loyal Legon.

The "loyal legon" were formed to break strikes and organizing efforts against poor conditions in the timber industries, union activity that threatened profit and war-production. 7:42 minutes (7.04 MB)
