As early in American history as the administration of Andrew Jackson the laboring class was becoming conscious of its strength and demanding legislation for its social and economic improvement. In 1828 a workingmen's party was formed at Philadelphia, to be followed in a few years by similar organizations in the manufacturing and industrial states of the North and East. Trade unions were formed. strikes were called, and the laborers sought various measures of relief from the state legislatures.
