This Day in Labor History 

On this day in Labor History the year was 1917. That was the day the United States declared war on Germany and entered World War I.  The war had been raging since 1914, but the US did not enter the conflict until 1917.  Dubbed the “War to End All Wars,” the conflict transformed the work experience for many women.
