Laborfest began in 1993 to commemorate the 1934 general strike that made San Francisco a union town, and together with the 1934 General Strikes in Minneapolis and Toledo, made possible in 1935, the passage of the Social Security and Unemployment Insurance Act, and the legalizing of the right to organize labor unions with the Wagner Act.
