The Pajama Game (1954) ran for 1,063 performances on Broadway, with revivals in 1973 and 2005, and a movie version in 1957 (starring Doris Day). The title sounds risque, but it's actually about the Sleeptite Pajama Factory in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Romantic plot #1: Manager Sid and worker Babe, who is petitioning for a 7.5 cent raise.
