Today is White Shirt Day! Here on Daily Holiday Blog, we are going to celebrate the day with some white fashion fun. Because if you are going to wear white today, you might as well look awesome while you are doing it!
On this day, workers wear white shirts to honor the first union strike of 1937. The workers at General Motors sought higher wages, an eight hour workday, better working conditions and recognition of their union, the United Auto Workers. White shirts signify that blue collar workers deserve the same respect as management.
The famous Sit-Down Strike began on Dec. 30, 1936, and lasted 44 days. The automaker finally agreed to recognize the union as the bargaining representative for the hourly employees. Starting a whole new era.
On the fashion side, white is a very popular color to wear, but how do you wear it well? You are in luck. I found a great cute video by UrbanOG, that shows us the many ways to wear white!
