SUMMARY:  Your good ol' anachronism-spewing Uncle Sam has a story for you... a story of about shirtwaists.  And the women who made them, in the earliest days of the labor movement.  They won higher pay... but died soon afterwards when the building was torched by the owners.

Your Uncle Sam (Terry Tocantins) has a story for you. On strike at the shirtwaist sweatshop. (L-R: Monica Greene, Cj Merriman & Shaela Cook) Emma (Alyssa Preston, center) is the leader of the strike effort. The factory owners (Will McMichael & Scot Shamblin) commiserate over the financial hit they took when they gave the women a raise... and plot to burn the factory down.
