Weber does not want to substitute one oversimplification for another, spiritualism for materialism; both are only symptoms of the larger issues of the spirit of capitalism and its origins and development in modern industrialist societies (Simon, 2006). Bureaucratic (…) organization guarantees the continuing rule-bound execution of official duties(Dischner, 2015). A bureaucracy can be very useful when laying out the tasks of your labourers. However when capitalists use such a system they start depersonalising social life. According to (Simon, 2006), for the bourgeoisie, labour is an economic commodity like other material goods, and the proletariat is forced to sell its labour on the market and face inhumane working conditions.

This restriction of union membership was significant because it resulted in more specialized reforms and demands for that specific group. Gompers success in his work in social justice for unions affected the conditions of workers through regulation acts, such as the Fair Labor Standards Act in 1938, and the Adamson Act in 1916. By creating this powerful union, Samuel Gompers contributed to the working class being treated fairly.

The union purpose when they strike is to stop the companies or factories from caring out their purpose of existence therefore, Labor unions play an important role in the labor market. A labor union is the union of workers having the right to negotiate with the employer for and on behalf of its members. The purpose of labor unions is the maximization of salaries of their members, improvement of their work conditions, and appointment of bonus supplements and privileges. In a competitive market, labor unions act in two ways: they tend either to increase the demand for labor, or restrict the supply.
We all know and avoid the obvious career mistakes like procrastination, poor work performance and not being prepared for a meeting. We tend to assume that doing our job well should be enough to get us recognised at work and get us that promotion or that pay raise. Working hard and doing our best should be enough to rise in the corporate ladder, right? Wrong.
I believe they should have rebalanced their priorities, by helping their workers more, and getting them involved in decision making. Although, at the same time, looking at it from an executive position, or shareholders position, they wouldn’t have made the money they
Shrek believes members want pay raises and promotions based on job performance (Shrek). The reality is union members do in fact want more! They want to be noticed by their performance and longevity not seniority! Union members do believe in collective bargaining however, given the opportunity to upgrade they will change sides.

Bill Quigley’s Top Ten Arguments for Raising the Minimum Wage argues that since the impact is so negligible there should be no reason businesses can’t afford it. He also addresses the “free market” system stating it will not take care of the workers. He points out the special tax breaks for businesses and states that this is nothing compared to raising wages, but this has yet to be done. Overall they seem to all agree that the workforce should be paid more, but do not agree how this should be enforced or even encouraged. Quigley very clearly believes in a minimum wage hike, stating that businesses will not take care of the people.
(page 81) Therefore, by taking an active role in choosing the elected officials, as a means to overthrow capitalism. Collective ownership was the way for employees’ achieved voice. Although they were not very successful, I like how The Knight of the Labor, viewed workers/producers as human beings, and how money although nice to have, was of less value that human life. It seems that they were not fully knowledgeable in what it took to operate a successful employee union, but I feel that their intentions were honorable.
As economic and social factors pushed workers to fight for a balance of workplace/bargaining power through union participation, political factors and Lakeside’s anti-union sentiment constricted that effort. Through the course of events, as the workers used the only tool at their disposal (striking), the balance of bargaining power shifted to where they could finally achieve a negotiated agreement with Lakeside. With labour law reform and across-the-board support for the labour movement, maybe incidents like Lakeside could be prevented in the
Corporations and workers both need each other to survive, but they don’t get along very well. Corporations are trying to get the most money they can get in the most efficient way possible. Workers on the other hand, are trying to get the most compensation for the labor they supply to the corporations. This leads to conflicts between both parties resulting in a strike. Strikes are good for the common worker because they help the worker get a good deal.
