History repeats itself. 

By 1910 the richest 10% of the population owned 90% of the nation’s wealth.  Working people took notice.  Between 1880 and 1900 there were more than 30 thousand strikes involving 6 million workers, nearly a third of the entire industrial workforce!  The period between 1875 and 1900 was the just the first phase of a protracted conflict between working people and capitalists over how much of the wealth created by industrialization would be shared with the laboring classes.
