    50. 50. Rise of Labor Unions
    51. 51. Great Strike of 1877In the economic slump that followed the Panic of 1873, railroad managers cut wages, increased workloads, and laid off workers. Such actions drove workers to strike and riot. The general railway strike of 1877 was the result of the organization of a series of strikes by unionized railroad workers to protest wage cuts. These protests involved violence, which spread from Pennsylvania and West Virginia to the Midwest, Texas, and California, and rioters even attacked railroad property, derailing trains and burning rail yards. State militia companies had to be organized in order to break up these picket lines
    52. 52. Haymarket AffairThis was known as the Haymarket Riot for it took place near Haymarket Square near downtown Chicago. About hundred thousand workers turned out including anarchists and radicals who believed in using violence. Later, police shot and killed two unionists and wounded several others which launched a chain of rallies and more violence. During a protest against police brutality, a bomb exploded as a police company neared, killing seven and injuring sixty-seven. Mass arrests were then made, and this event later drew attention to labors growing discontent and heightened fear of radicalism.
    53. 53. The Homestead StrikeThe AFL and the labor movement suffered a series of setbacks in the early 1890s when labor violence stirred public fears once again. In July 1892, AFL- affiliated Amalgamated Association of Iron and Steelworkers refused to accept pay cuts and went on to strike in Homestead, Pennsylvania in what was known as the Homestead Strike. Henry C. Frick, president of the Carnegie Steel Company closed the plant and later tried to protect the plant by hiring three hundred guards. Attacks and violence followed and the strikers gave in after five months. By this time, public opinion had turned against the union after a young anarchist attempted to assassinate Frick.
    54. 54. The Pullman Strike In 1894, workers of at the Pullman Palace Car Company walked out in protest over exploitative policies at the company town near Chicago. Although the paternalistic George Pullman provided everything for the twelve thousand residents of the so-called model town named after him, he would not negotiate with workers. When hard times began in 1893, Pullman tried to protect profits by cutting wages. Workers sent a committee to Pullman to protest his policies but Pullman reacted by firing three of them. Enraged workers called a strike, also known as the Pullman Strike, and Pullman retaliated by closing his factory. This union was led by Eugene V. Debs, voted to aid the strikers by refusing to handle any Pullman cars attached to any trains. However, soon the strike ended when President Grover Cleveland ordered federal troops to crush the protests and Debs was sent to prison for defying the court injunction.
