During 1910, the country was progressing quickly towards a greater form of mass production and increasingly dangerous working conditions. People labored in squalor like in the “below ground bakeries,” where rat droppings covered rolling tables and children were “coughing beside ovens.” Progressives, unionists, and socialists called for different types of reform, and Tammany Hall opposed them; the political machine sent strikebreakers and stalled legislation that would benefit the workers. Then, on March 25, 1911, the Triangle Waist Company factory caught fire at the end of the day shift. About 146 men and women died in the Asch Building.
Before the structured labor society that we live in today, America was a very different working world; one plagued with injustice and grievances from workers across the job sectors. Two organizations, the Knights of Labor and later the American Federation of Labor acted as activists for reform and demanded better standards for working, living, and life for workers. Their strategies and success in achieving their goals were as different as the organizations themselves. Coming from a time of segregation and social divide, the Knights of Labor stood out as one of the most accepting labor unions of the age, which largely accounted for their membership to reach almost 800,000 members during its peak. All workers in a trade were included, regardless of their skill level.
Based on our group’s research, we believe that the labor movement in the 1820s in the United States during the Jacksonian Democracy was a major factor in the implementation of many of the laws and better working conditions that are present in today’s society. As we have learned and presented to the class, this labor movement in the 1820s grew out of the need to protect the common interest of workers and to improve their overall working conditions. We currently see the results of these labor unions that were formed in the 1820s whenever we enjoy the luxury of having our weekends off from work and having the opportunity to miss work, also known as “sick leave”, when we are ill. We now have an established minimum wage and legally, no one is forced

The decision towards deciding the best application and form of health care can be assessed through a spectrum that goes from one to five with two significant extremes.
