The American Labor Movement

Abstract: (5 pp) The history of the American Labor Movement seems to be one of action and then reaction The second attempt at unionizing workers was called The Noble and Holy Order of the Knights of Labor, it began inauspiciously in 1869 as a secret society, with a private ritual, passwords, and a grip. Secrecy, which continued until 1881, would forestall possible reprisals by employers. The Knights excluded only liquor dealers, p rofessional gamblers, lawyers,bankers, and stockbrokers, and sang the song: Hurrah, hurrah, for labor, it is mustering all its powers, And shall march along to victory with the banner of eight hours. Times have moved from stressing the rights of the American worker to stressing the rights of the American working family. Bibliography lists 3 sources.
