My great grandfather and fellow workers were beat up for coal miners rights and child labor laws. My grandfathers group fought for a steel union. Blacks suffered brutal beatings in Civil Rights marches. Women fought for the right to vote also. You think if they hadn’t those jobs would be here today? I’ve seen non-union outfits close just as fast. Sometimes violence is your only recourse. GFY.
