NARRATOR: I didn't have anything against them, personally, but in the end it was a sucker's game. When the guys with nothing band together, what do the guys with everything do? They buy the newspapers, the radio, and most of the politicians.
NARRATOR: They usually buy the police as well, but even if they can't do that they can always bring in the next best thing.

NARRATOR: Everyone knew that unions were doomed from the start, and everyone was right--except for one case. One union--an organization hated and feared by every factory owner in America--one union not only survived, but prospered. Grew. Flourished.
NARRATOR: They called it the "Great North Union." And Dewalde was in it up to his ears.
