Course number : HCW-116    Section Number : A4
« back to classes page
Americans believe in progress; the idea that things get better over time. And compared with the 19th century, workers are better paid and have safer workplaces. But how did we achieve this? Explore the key events in the 20th century that brought changes to the nature of work in America, including the everyday experiences of workers and the role of the American Labor Movement. Discover how men and women from different and varied origins and cultures both individually and collectively challenged employers regarding working conditions and wage-earning status. What can we learn from their story to give us insight and inspiration as we face the complex issues of working in America today? Have we achieved enough, or is there more work to do?
