An Iowa pajama factory worker falls in love with an affable superintendent who had been hired by the factory's boss to help oppose the workers' demand for a pay raise.
One of the main problems in the factory is that the workers want a 7-1/2 cent raise and are willing to go on strike to get it. Nowadays this doesn't seem like much, but the average mill/garment worker in 1954 (when the play was written) made on average about $1.25 an hour, or about $50 a week. The raise would add $3.00 to each paycheck, so the 7-1/2 cents would be about a 16% increase.
It's a plot to murder me... That's the work of foreigners.
