Close-up of a notice posted by the Fall River Canning Company in response to striking workers. The left notice is posted in English and on the right is Spanish. It identifies workers who walked off the job to strike, notifies them that they are fired and must vacate the premises and camp. It also warns other workers that they will receive the same treatment if they follow suit. Someone has written on them "Puro" "cheat" possibly a Spanish-English mix of the Mexican-Spanish phrase "pura mentira" which means "pure lies" in English. <p></p>Aviso para trabajadores en huelga de parte de la compañía Fall River Canning Company <p></p>Vista de cerca de un aviso puesto por la compañía Fall River Canning Company en respuesta a los trabajadores haciendo huelga.
