George Pullman, and other employers, controlled their employees and did not care if the wage was too low or the working conditions weren’t safe. George Pullman controlled a company that manufactured sleeping cars for trains and operated them under contract to the railroads. He created Pullman City to house his employees; it was a three thousand acre plot of land south of Chicago in the area of 114th Street and Cottage Grove. His employees were required to live in Pullman City. He made the clergy pay rent to use the church, and he charged money for use of the library. The workers were expected to accept pay cuts and not criticize workloads. If a worker went into debt, the money was taken from his paycheck (Brendel). George Pullman was extremely eager to earn money and extremely tight-fisted when it came to paying his employees. This caused the Pullman Palace Car Company workers to walk out on May 11, 1894 (Smith). This was called a “wildcat strike” because the workers did not have permission from their union to strike.

Unions have been around for a long time. The first union was established in 1866 in the U.S. with the foundation of the National Labor Union or the NLU. The National Labor Union was created to persuade Congress to change laws. The NLU was against holding strikes and instead relied on political action to reach its goals. The NLU, made up of farmers, workers, and reformers, excluding African Americans and women, firstly wanted Congress to limit the work days to just eight hours, and it was able to make this change, but after this none of its other suggestions made it through. Eventually, the NLU was dissolved in 1873, but with its existence, it boosted public awareness to make changes for labor laws.

As the world developing, the advancements in technology has become a heated topic. While the majority of labor union members believe it is immoral to have hi-tech machines do the jobs of human workers, the other majority of non-union workers opposed this idea. It has been said: "Majority ignorance is as common as majority wisdom" (Ruggiero, 2015, p. 23). Therefore, majority view should not be used as a measurement of morality in this instance, or in any other cases. For this case, what the development of the advanced technology does is not just to eliminate old jobs and also creates new jobs. For example, machines cannot just appear or maintain by themselves, they need human to design, to build, to establish programs, and so on, to be able

Unemployment is universally recognized as a bad thing. While economists and academics make convincing arguments that there is a certain natural level of unemployment that cannot be erased, elevated unemployment imposes significant costs on the individual, the society and the country. Worse yet, most of the costs are of the dead loss variety where there are no offsetting gains to the costs that everyone must bear (Depending on how it 's measured). Unemployment represents the number of people in the work force who want to work but do not have a job. It is generally stated as a percentage and calculated by dividing the number of people who are unemployed by the total work force. The work force is made up of those people who want to work; it excludes people who are retired, disabled, and able to work but not currently looking for a position; for instance, they may be taking care of children or going to college.
