Brief description of Labor union and there leaders.
Hey there! My name is Samuel Gompers and I'm the president of The American Federation of labor aka AFL.
AFL focused on securing for its members higher wages, better working conditions, and a shorter work week. The members of the union where also very skilled.
Originally a secret society, Knights of labor grew not so fast during the hard years of 1870s. Under Powderly's leadership in 1879 the union grew profoundly. By 1886 the group had an outstanding 700,000 members.
I am Terence V. Powderly and I'm an important leader of the K of L aka the Knights of Labor.
The IWW was formed in 1905 by a group of labor radicals, most of whom were socialists. Also nicknamed "the Wobblies", the union wanted to organize all workers according to industry without making distinctions between skilled and unskilled workers.
