Labor, Capital, and Government: The Anthracite Coal Strike of 1902

This case explores how the federal government, under President Theodore Roosevelt, sought to adjudicate between the interests of capital and labor during the Second Industrial Revolution. This strike and its resulting impact is thought by some to be the most important single incident in the history of the labor movement. Key concepts include the nature of labor unions, and the various constituencies and influencers that affect the balance of power between labor and capital.
