The Ludlow Massacre

The relationship between the employees and employers during the Ludlow Massacre , is so different then the relationship between the employees and employers now. Back during this time before the industrial revolution, the employers didn’t treat the employees good at all. They didn’t treat them good because they didn’t care about them at all. The only thing they cared about was their profit.

According to Woodrow Guthrie the Ludlow Massacre was a “mini war” where the state militia (today the national guards) went on a killing spree, killing the employees (there job was mining) . To defend them selves against the shooting, they dug trenches under their tents so when they shot at them they would just go in the trenches. One night when they were all asleep the national guards put gasoline on the tents and burned them down. They tried to get in the trenches to stay safe, but got trapped and died. A lot of people died, including 13 children.

The relationship between the employees and the government is not a healthy relationship at all. The government is suppose to care about the people no matter their color or job. That was not the case in this situation.
