The United States has a pretty significant history of labor and social unrest as a result of economic inequality and ownership abuse of labor. Conveniently, it's been expunged from our current education's curriculum.
The period from 1900 - 1950 saw the development of organized labor and the evolution of its relationship from a threat to ownership into an effective collaboration with ownership and management. The reason why it was effective is that ownership correctly understood the threat to it that organized labor represented.
People need to pay attention to what's beginning to happen.
