LUDDITE: A term used when referring to people, especially workers and union members, who are violently opposed to the introduction of new technology and technologically advanced machinery. Their opposition stems in part from a fear of something that is new and different and in part from a concern that the new technology will reduced the demand for labor and eliminate their jobs. This name stems for the actions of a group calling themselves Luddites who, from 1811 to 1816, sabotaged knitting machines introduced into the textile industry in England.
