North and South, by Elizabeth Gaskell: While I sympathize with the plight of the workers it is NOT a simple problem.

I know many of my friends love this book but I didn’t! I didn’t love any of the characters…except the mill owner who she looked down on–He was good. The mother and father drove me nuts. I think part of my dislike of the book comes from the labor union stuff. We were on the receiving end of unscrupulous union practices (i.e. Lance was set up and then brought up on federal charges during the summer of 2007) so while I sympathize with the plight of the workers it is NOT a simple problem or an outdated one.
