ADVERTISEMENTS:

The industrial revolution which was characterized by the introduction of machines gave rise to a class of industrial workers. These industrial work­ers were soon involved in a conflict with the capitalists and organized themselves into trade unions to improve their conditions.

The workers sought to protect their interests in two ways. Firstly, they organized them­selves into trade unions to wrest concessions from employers. Secondly, they tried to capture the machinery of state to reconstruct a social order which was conducive to their interests.

For the attainment of these objec­tives the workers either resorted to direct action, or sought to achieve them through political action. Generally both these methods were adopted con­currently and they exercised great influence on each other.
