Some would die due to the horrible working conditions such as no water, no breaks, and harsh labor.For these struggles to end farmers needed a new leader to fight for them and that 's when Cesar Chavez came along. When Cesar Chavez came along and took control he became an effective leader because he was willing to create a union, expose the working conditions, and his methods of boycotting.

During their ride in the rail cars to another camp they were not given food for three days so when they had the chance to get bread that was thrown to them, they would fight for it.
The justice looks like the major issue of the plot, as Abner’s actions are explained by himself and his family as a response to an insult.

But this is also a complex situation, as other family members, who did not support Abner’s position directly, did not experience the improvement in their living conditions and even could be hurt or killed.

Bob Ewell has put Maycomb and its people to shame. Everything he does, like having a job and then being too lazy to do it, resulting in him losing his job affects the family greatly.

Men, women, and children were working and got employed in factories to work, and the dangerous and strenuous labor that children were put through to help the family expense caused many young children to die. Workers individually could not stop corporations, but collectively they could make an impact on their wages.

This era sought to heal the nation after the Industrial Revolution and the corruption and greed of the Business Elite. One major feat of Progressivism was the establishment of settlement houses beginning in 1989, which sought to benefit the working class by providing childcare, classes, and food for labor workers. This relationship between the upper and lower classes provided a sense of empowerment for laborers, especially women. This would eventually lead to the “uprising of 20,000” of 1909, in which Triangel Shirtwait Company workers would march for their rights. These rights were then denied by the government, until the tragic fire that lead to the death of many Triangle employees.
Henry Frick was most to blame for the labor dispute at Homestead turning into a violent battle because he lowered working conditions, locked disagreeing workers out of the factory, and hired the Pinkertons. Frick lowered the pay and lengthened the work hours for the workers, causing the workers to go on strike.

Frick also locked the workers out of the factory. His quick and uncaring ways showed that whoever was working for Frick did not matter to him since he could easily replace them with workers who would not complain.
