Imagine that you are a railroad worker in the late 19th century in America. The Great Railroad Strike of 1877 has just begun as you consider joining the local railroad labor union. Why are so many of your co-workers going on strike? Are you going to join them in the union and strike with them? Why or why not? Do you think this will do any good?
