The adventure story of the battles, betrayals, and victories of American working men and women. Two newspaper reporters tell the story of labor unions in the United States from their first appearance in the mid-1800s through the early 1950s.
We concentrate on just a few of the chief events and protagonists from the early portion of the 20th century. The authors write from a decidedly pro-union stance. Reading this book, one comes to understand how and why socialism and even communism could have had such a popular appeal! Disturbing.
