Joseph Nimmo was an economist and statistician for the United States Government. This lecture examines the violent strike at Pullman, Illinois in 1894. He believed in a symbiotic relationship between employers and employees. Nimmo’s lecture excoriates the laborers who he calls “anarchists.” He believed that this labor uprising put the livelihood of thousands of other laborers across the country at risk and felt that the use of the Army to suppress the strike was entirely justified.
