“Norma Rae” quotes(1979)
Plot – 1978. Norma Rae is thirty-years-old and works in a textile mill with her parents. The factory is the only job opportunity in the small Alabama village and the workers aren't granted a union, so wages, schedules, production rates and working conditions are at the mercy of some cynical leaders. When the hard tempered woman tries to react, she's beaten and when she raises her voice in the mill, she's hated by all her colleagues. In the meantime, Reuben comes from New York to found in the village a section of TWUA - the Textile Workers Union of America. Norma Rae is married to Sonny but she's fascinated by the unionist and fights by his side. Thanks to her, the factory workers are granted the elections.
