On this day in Labor History the year was 1913. Police in New Orleans shot at maritime workers striking against the United Fruit Company.

Two workers were wounded. A third laid dead in the street. At the time of the strike the port in New Orleans was one of the busiest U.S. ports for importing bananas.
