About this product
- DescriptionFrom factory workers in Welland to retail workers in St. Catharines, from hospitality workers in Niagara Falls to migrant farm workers in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Union Power showcases the role of working people in the Niagara region. Early industrial development and the appalling working conditions of the often vulnerable common labourer prompted a movement toward worker protection. Charting the development of the region's labour movement from the early nineteenth century to the present, Patrias and Savage illustrate how workers from this highly diversified ecomy struggled to improve their lives both inside and outside the workplace.
