Why did strikes fail to result in improved working conditions for laborers?

  • Social Studies (History) - ,

    Ahh -- but strikes eventually brought about changes in working conditions.

    But during the Gilded Age the companies had more money and power than the unions. Also -- if a company fired workers, there were a lot of poor workers who eagerly grabbed at the available jobs. It was an employers' market.

    So really strikes made the Unions look like trouble makers, the violence turned many others empathetic citizens away from Unions, and the Unions lost support and power as a result in the early 1900s?

    Yes.
