How did violent strikes hurt workers?

In the United States, strikes were an extremely useful tool for unions until about 1980. Strikes gained benefits for the workers and made the unions a strong political force. In 1976 Jimmy Carter was elected president. A sunset provision was established for a number of governmental boards and agencies that served no purpose. When Ronald Reagin was elected president in 1980, those boards and agencies expired. Small, non unionized steel mills using the oxygen process could produce steel for far less money than the large corporations using the bessemer convertors. Without the governmental regulations, strikes no longer worked in private enterprise. They still worked in government. Today, most union members are government employees. They make far more money than their counterparts in the same jobs in private enterprise. Strikes work where the government has a monopoly. They stopped working where deregulation and competition came in.

What was a lasting impact of George Washington's presidency?

In some states, workers must become a member of that union, that has negotiated a collective bargaining agreement, or lose their job. Today, even non union workers, have received the benefits that labor unions have gained for their members, like safe working conditions, better pay, pension plans, and health insurance. In some dictatorial nations, like China and North Korea, labor unions are either banned or controlled by the government.
