Bread and Roses [Ken Loach, 2000, 110 min] is a film about janitorial workers in LA and their struggle for better working conditions and the right to be in a union.

The movie’s title is also a slogan connected with IWW history, more specifically the textile workers’ strike in Lawrence, Massachusetts in 1912.
