Both presentations together number 47 slides. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change them to fit your individual needs.

The origins of the labor movement occurred in the formative years of the American nation, when a free wage-labor market emerged in the artisan trades late in the colonial period. The earliest recorded strike occurred in 1768 when New York journeymen tailors protested a wage reduction. The labor movement in the United States grew out of the need to protect the common interest of workers.

For those in the industrial sector, organized labor unions fought for better wages, reasonable hours and safer working conditions. The labor movement led efforts to stop child labor, give health benefits and provide aid to workers who were injured or retired.

In the 19th century, trade unionism was mainly a movement of skilled workers. Industrial workers played little part in the early trade union development. The early labor movement was inspired by more than the immediate job interest of its craft members. The movement harbored a conception of the just society from the republican ideals of the American Revolution, which fostered social equality, celebrated honest labor, and relied on an independent, virtuous citizenship.

Between 1975 and 1985, union membership fell by 5 million. In manufacturing, the unionized portion of the labor force dropped below 25%, while mining and construction, once labor’s flagship industries, were decimated. Only in the public sector did the unions hold their own. By the end of the 1980s, less than 17% of American workers were organized, half the proportion of the early 1950s.

Organized labor is today much more diverse and broadly based: 40% of its members are white-collar workers, 30% are women, 14.5% who are black signify a greater representation than in the general population and a greater rate of participation than by white workers.
