• how did living in company towns make union membership more difficult for workers?

  • Answers
  • Living in company towns made union membership more difficult for workers because they were isolated from the rest of society, and anti-union sentiment was so pervasive that it dissuaded many workers from joining a union. Furthermore, since the employer owned the town, they had the ability to influence the population and prevent unionization by refusing to hire union members or by threatening to close the town if unionization occurred. Many employers also bribed or threatened workers to not join unions, making it even harder for the workers to form one.
