This week we are going to discuss the impact of the Industrial Revolution on workers during the Gilded Age (late 1800s).  Employers ruled and the courts and legislatures generally sided with employers.  Workers had little to no protection.  How did industrialism affect workers?  Why did employers find unions so objectionable, even dangerous?  What benefits did workers see in unions?
