    1. Absolutely dangerous and an important part of U.S. Labor history. I teach labor relations and it’s amazing to challenge my students’ convictions on pro/anti unionization. The point is not to sway them in one direction or another, but rather for them to see the history from a more objective point of view. Even now when I consult in industrial/mfg. environments, I see the necessity of the push-pull relationship. Fascinating stuff!

      Thanks for stopping by!
