The world of work – extinct professions – strike

Anyone who believes that a strike or a stoppage of work is an achievement of industrialization in the 19th century will learn from this article that the first labor conflict was documented in ancient Egypt under Ramses III over 3,000 years ago.

Then it would be almost 2,500 years before we find another strike in history.

You will be amazed at the measures that were taken centuries ago by both employees and employers.
