Storyboard Text

  • The goal of the United Mine Workers was to get better pay, shorter hours, and safer work condition, also to stop child labor and receive greater health benefits/medical care.
  • If I'm going to work this long, I deserve better pay!!!
  • The United Mine Workers of America was started by John L. Lewis in 1890. 
  • My name is John Lewis and I'm responsible for the UMWA
  • The goals to help coal miners we used collective bargaining and striking, sometimes violent tactics.
  • It's so hard to see how badly the coal miners and workers are being treated
  • The Coal strike of 1902 was important because mine workers powered the nation. Without coal, it was cold, there was no heat, and none of the other factories had electricity to run. 
  • I don't like where I work. It is dangerous and I barely get paid enough to pay my bills. I AM GOING ON STRIKE!
  • I did have to get violent, but I now am working in manageable conditions. Things are not perfect but it is a lot better than what is was.
  • The Coal Strike of 1902 was very successful and shortened the work day and increased wages. 
  • The United Mine Workers of America
