LABOR UNION MOVEMENT: Activities on the part of workers in the United States, beginning in the mid-1800s and extending into the mid-1900s, to establish labor unions and otherwise promote the interests of workers. This movement, which coincided with the onset of the U.S. industrial revolution, was launched with the Commonwealth versus Hunt court decision in 1842 which made it legal to join a labor union. The labor union movement had a turbulent and violent history as organized labor sought to gain greater control over labor market activities. The movement reached its peak in the 1950s, with just under 30% of the labor force belonging to labor unions.

Charging Up Your CREDIT CARDS (aka Plastic Money)

Here's the scene: You've made your monthly stop (for the second time this week) at the Mega-Mart Discount Warehouse Super Center for a few essentials -- cashews, soap, licorice, garden hose, peanut clusters, color television, and a large inner tube for whitewater rafting. Do you pay with a check or whip out your Interstate OmniBank Platinum Diamond Express credit card? Credit card? Good choice. You don't actually have to PAY for the stuff that you're buying -- at least not right away. Your bank account is safe.
