Daily Worker

 

a daily Marxist newspaper in the USA. It began to be published in 1924 in Chicago, and in 1927 in New York. Because of financial and organizational difficulties the newspaper ceased publication in 1958. The publication of the Daily Worker’s Sunday supplement—The Worker —as a sociopolitical organ continued, and The Worker was succeeded in 1968 by the Daily World.
