Conditions and improving situation late 19th/early 20th century


You and your learning community are a group of inter-related family and friends who immigrated to America from eastern Europe one year ago (late 19th/early 20th century).  You have been pooling your resources to get ahead. The women, older children, and most of the men have found work, mostly in the factories, but life is difficult. What should you do to ameliorate your conditions and improve your situation?

In the initial post, put forward your best suggestion to improve your lot in life.

Discuss the merits of your ideas and others by responding to the ideas others are putting forward by making three comment posts (in response to others’ initial posts).

NOTE: You must provide specific and detailed historical evidence in your posts – cite as appropriate.  Consider a full host of options not limited to: unions, political response, social responses, further migration, etc.
