Excerpt from Strikes in Massachusetts, 1830-1880: From the Eleventh Annual Report of the Massachusetts Bureau of Statistics of Labor, for 1880

The industrial progress of Massachusetts, like that of every other manufacturing community, has been marked by occasional conflicts between capital and labor. With the view of presenting an accurate summary of these conflicts, and, if possible, throwing some light upon their causes, results, and general effect upon the wage classes, this chapter has been prepared.

It was not until the third decade of the present century that the vexed questions which unfortunately at times separate the employer and employed culminated in actual outbreaks here. As early as 1825 the subject of adopting ten hours as the length of a days work began to be agitated among the journeymen engaged in the building trades. In 1830 there were several strikes of brief duration in Boston, to secure shorter days. From 50 to 150 men - carpenters and masons - engaged in these movements, which were generally unsuccessful, the places of the strikers being easily filled. Some of the employers looked upon the ten-hour plan with favor, and expressed their willingness to pay their workmen by the hour, and to allow them to make ten hours the limit of a days work.

During the following year, other strikes occurred similar to those of 1830, and with like results. In October, 1831, about 60 machinists in Taunton struck to secure permission to quit work at sundown, their employers requiring them to remain until 7.30 p.m.

Early in 1832 there was a strike of carpenters in Boston in behalf of the ten-hour system; the masons, painters, and slaters also joined to some extent. About 150 men took part in this strike, more than half of whom returned to work at the end of ten days.
