Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Strike action, also called labour strike, on strike, greve (of French: gr ve), or simply strike, is a work stoppage caused by the mass refusal of employees to work. A strike usually takes place in response to employee grievances. Strikes became important during the industrial revolution, when mass labour became important in factories and mines. In most countries, they were quickly made illegal, as factory owners had far more political power than workers. Most western countries partially legalized striking in the late 19th or early 20th centuries.show more
