Bread & Roses

According to Wikipedia, the saying "Bread and Roses" came from a poem by James Oppenheim, and is commonly associated with a textile strike in Lawrence, Massachusetts during the early 1900s. It is said that the "moving picket line" was invented during that strike, which (led in large part by women) united many immigrant communities and was successfully settled in favor of the workers, earning them pay increases and promises to end discrimination against striking workers.
