This paper looks at the deplorable labor conditions that existed during the Industrial Revolution and the labor unions that were organized in response to those conditions. The paper looks at the economic depression, dangerous working conditions, and low wages that created a crisis between workers and management Also examined are some of the tactics used by both sides in an effort to gain the upper hand and the eventual resolution of the conflict.

From the Paper:

"The new industrial labor introduced workers and businesses alike to a new world--literally. Workers who were used to planning their days and jobs around the rising and setting sun, were now adjusting to working by the clock. Workers also had to adjust to being paid by the hour and also had to adjust to the pace of their work being set by machinery. Economic depressions and dangerous working conditions coupled with low wages created a crisis that workers and management alike had to face and deal with. This crisis would not come easily nor would it come painlessly, but the industrial revolution could not be stopped and it was up to man to work with the system and create something that would work on both sides of the assembly line."
