This Olio presents a short history of the rise of the Union movement as a response to changing work conditions brought about by the process of industrialization from the 1830’s to the twentieth century. The presentation also looks at the diverse groups of men, women and immigrants who helped shape the development of the labor movement.
Think Olio is not about learning a new skill or adding credentials to your resume. It is about getting together with other people and expanding our worldview. It exists as a conduit for fruitful discussions, a dissent from the regurgitation of facts, and an embrace of new perspectives.
