Storyline

Mr. Michael McCarthy and his associates struck work. They were brick layers and building men by trade. They struck and gathered themselves together; formed a local, elected "Mickey" McCarthy president, and asserted their freedom. Mr. "Builder," whose work was stopped, offered a reward of $500 to anybody who would break the strike. Mrs. McCarthy got wind of the offer. She gathered the wives of the strike-breakers together. They went in a body to the builder and offered to do the work, leaving their husbands at home to do the domestic work; a job of which they soon tired. The result was, of coarse, inevitable; the men went back to work. Mr. "Builder" kept his promise and paid the reward to the chief strike-breaker. This was Mrs. McCarthy, who triumphantly pocketed the $500 check. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
