Alaska Packers -- The Video Treatment

And if a flag is not enough, you might want to show your students a video that illustrates the problem faced by Domenico and his colleagues in the Alaska Packers case.

As I explain to my students before showing the video, the problems Domenico et al. faced went beyond faulty nets.  In fact, as the video suggests, Alaska Packers' workers were to go to extraordinary lengths to procure salmon for the company.  Given what they had to go through, it's not suprising that they demanded higher pay.  I wouldn't fight a bear for 2 cents a fish.  I mean, I might have in 1902, but I have since learned from Stephen Colbert that bears can be mean.
