19th century workers: My employer beat me and threatened my family for trying to form a union. One of my coworkers lost his leg because of unsafe work environments. I'm being forced to work 16 hour days and my daughter works in the coal mine. 21st century workers: My employer said something maybe a little mean to me and told me to work a little harder. Oh also they cut this one portion of a very generous benefits package. Oh and RRRAAACCCIIISSSTTT!!!
