Gilded Age
Mark Twain at the turn of the 20th Century coined the phrase Gilded Age. It described the Industrial Revolution with a society in which the influence of the farming declined and the power of wealth industrialist (called Robber Barons expanded). The Robber Barons became wealthier and the working class saw their fortunes and social positions decline. Labor Unions by using boycotts, strikes and legislation rapidly grew in power and influence.
