War And Labor Unions

24 pages in length. The role labor unions have played with regard to wartime activities has been historically conspicuous. As integral as these unions were when it came to the comprehensive influence of war, they did not always fare well in the aftermath. Indeed, it can be argued that the effects of war often had detrimental consequences for labor unions as a whole. Had it not been for the original formation of the Noble Order of the Knights of Labor back in the mid eighteen hundreds, the American work ethic would have remained chaotic and in dire need of reorganization. The Knights were solely responsible for assembling some kind of organized labor for the American worker, which included higher wages and better working conditions. These tenets had since been fortified as labor unions established more strength within the workforce; however, it can be argued that each time the unions would solidly establish themselves from a previous setback, war would enter into the picture and disrupt that position, particularly World War I, World War II and the Korean Conflict.
