Norma Rae Webster is a minimum-wage worker in a cotton mill that has taken too much of a toll on the health of her family for her to ignore their Dickensian working conditions. After hearing a speech by a New York union organizer Reuben Warshowsky, Norma Rae decides to join the effort to unionize her shop. This causes conflict at home when Norma Rae's husband, Sonny, says she's not spending enough time in the home. Despite the pressure brought to her by management, when confronted, Norma Rae takes a piece of cardboard, writes the word "UNION" on it and stands on her work table, and slowly turns to show the sign around the room. One by one, the other workers stop their mill machines, and eventually, the entire room becomes silent. After all the machines have been switched off she is taken to jail, but is freed by Reuben. She then decides to talk to her kids and tell them the story of her life...
