Social Studies 8R help!!!!

What were the goals of (a) the Knights of Labor? (b) the AFL?

Answer (a) - ??????

Answer (b) - Unlike the Knights of Labor, the AFL supported the use of strikes to achieve its goals. The AFL collected money from its member unions. Some of it went into a strike fund. When AFL members went on strike, they were paid from the fund so that they could still feed their families.

Am I correct for answer (b) and in my textbook it doesn't say any goals of the knights of labor. In my textbook it says "Despite the failure of the Knights of Labor, the labor movement continued to grow"

Please help for answer (a)!!!
