Even in wartime there were labor conflicts, fueled by the sacrifices and tensions of the war; As World War II began, all Milwaukeeans felt the effect of the war, whether through concern for loved ones in danger, longer work hours, consumer shortages, or participation in war service organizations and drives. Workers produced goods essential for victory - the vehicles, weapons, munitions, and components for the machinery of war. But there were still labor conflicts, fueled by the sacrifices and tensions of wartime life. A City at War looks at the stands of the CIO and the AFL against low wartime wages and at women in unionized factories facing the perceptions and goals of male workers, union leaders, and society itself.
