    This stuff happens. This exact kind of thing - strikes, protests, etc. - is what started the labor movement at the beginning of the 20th century and brought down the robber barons. Or at least crippled them to some extent.

    I've been watching The men who built America on the history channel. It's not bad, and is eerily similar to things now.

    100 yrs later, we're still fighting the robber barons. I guess we always will, in some way or another.
