A lecture by J. Ward Regan
In the early 19th century, the process of industrialization created a new social order that placed emerging groups of bosses and workers into conflict. No city in the United States exemplified this transformation than New York. We explore the rise of the union movement as a response to changing work conditions brought about by the process of industrialization, from the 1830s to the 20th century. By looking at both the technological transformation of the workplace and the development of trade unions, we arrive at a clearer picture of the cultural impacts of industrialization, including the diverse groups of women and immigrants who helped shape the development of the labor movement.
