This is suuuuch a good article about workers’ struggles during the depression of the 1890s. Then, as now, there was an inclination to blame unemployed people for their own predicament, and a reluctance to acknowledge that the interests of those with jobs and those without are bettered by both groups uniting in a common struggle. Plus, the history is very interesting.
