Cadillac Salesmen Go On Strike.
New York -- A group of smartly dressed Cadillac salesmen are shown picketing a Cadillac salesroom at 57th and Broadway today in one of New York's strangest strikes. Tthe strikers delivered an angry verbal blast against the Cadillac Division General Managers for allegedly circulating reports that some of them make as much as $40,000 a year. The strikers' major complaints concern such grievances as no fixed hours, no holidays, no paid vacations, no welfare benefits and no pension plans. (1955)
