Worker movement

Definition, Concept and Meaning: Worker movement

It is known under the name of "labor movement" to the business of manufacturing employee groups, mobilized in a "battle plan" for the recognition of labor rights.
These labor movements arose as a result of the influence of communist ideas that work revalued contribution of labor relative to capital, both factors (capital and labor) required for industrial activity, but in liberal capitalism, workers left homeless, they should sell their work for the law of supply and demand, as if it were a mere commodity.
The Industrial Revolution transformed the world of work from the mid eighteenth century, produced many injustices social, and against them were organized workers a century later, first legally recognized organizations (underground) until they were recognized unions, which grouped workers according to their trades, creating in 1864, the International Workers Association.
The unions were protagonists from that era of great fights, some particularly bloody, as occurred on May 1, 1886, that originated the International Labour Day.
These labor movements in pursuit of their rights (limited time, Sunday rest, paid holidays, special arrangements for women and children) gave rise to the Labor Law, which was expanding the rights granted, especially since the adoption of the welfare state, since the mid-twentieth century, although the neoliberalism of the 70, again ignoring these important achievements.
Labor movements have left to act, and stay tuned for manifest with active protests (marches) or removes collaborative (strikes) to obtain rights or to prevent encroachments and conquered.
