Stein's take on the economic survival of NOT JUST enthnically white laborers (gandy dancers, which included Eastern European immigrants, Black-Americans and Japanese immigrants) is completely historically incorrect, and a despicable revisionism of real American labor history! [The laborers, seeking better conditions, were replaced with Chinese laborers, the majority of who were literally worked to death, and the laid off and unarmed workers were first attacked, and responded to, their bosses' armed thugs, and worked their way down to the replacement scab workers who were unarmed.] First familiarize yourself with the Ludlow Massacre, the railroad strikes, and the Hay Market Massacre to get a better understanding of historic events.
