In 1980, despite the general dislike of Reagan by organized labor, he managed to gain the endorsement of the Professional Air Traffic Controllers Organization (PATCO). However, in early August of 1981, when PATCO voted to strike over demands for increases in wages and benefits, Reagan gave them two days to get back to work or be fired.

In what was to be one of Reagan’s shows of resolve, he ended up firing more than half of them within the next two weeks (over 11,000 controllers). Wilentz notes that “Not in living memory had the federal government crushed a strike so effectively.”
