Describe cause and effect of haymarket riot?
Well idk about the effects, I'm looking for that too, but I know
the cause.. Business and government leaders were scared that the
unions were going to spread the socialist's idea that all members
of society are created equal and share work and profits. They were
also scared that the unions would spread the anarchist's thought of
abolishing the government. On May 3, srikebreakers, union members,
and police fought because the McCormick Harvest Company hired
strikebreakers to replace the striking union members. During the
fight, one of the union members was killed... and then another
fight began, which was, of course known as the Haymarket
I'm glad I could help... well, I hope I can.. whatever.. I'm
just really bored :)
One of the effects was the 'yellow dog contract'. The yellow dog
contract was a contract used by employers that, after an employee
signed it, prevented said employee from joining a union.
