Actually too many of you buy the idea that in the beginning unions were good because you buy the history written by biased historians as it is today. Good research with a perspective prior to the Industrial Revolution would show they were as damaging then as now. Many of the horror stories were told because it sold. To look at history, begin before the event. How were lives of the common man before the IR and how were they after? Much better you will find if you do your homework.
