More power to the people – new findings on labour market conflicts when electricity was a novelty
In connection with the international celebration of the labour movement on 1 May, researchers in economic history show how areas in Sweden with early access to electricity at the start of the 1900s underwent rapid change. Electrification led to more strikes, but it was not those who were threatened by the new technology who walked out in protest. Instead, it was the professional groups who had acquired a stronger negotiating position – thanks to technological development.
