Labor in early America 1492 to late 1600s
Development of the Labor Movement
Paper Assignment 1
“The beginning of European settlement of the Americas from 1492 was marked by an extensive demand for labor. As the
assigned class readings and film documentaries show, the earliest forms of labor involved both coerced labor and forms
of indentured servitude that utilized the work of Europeans, Native Americans and African peoples. By the late 1600s,
this fluid labor arrangement became more restrictive and formalized, with a form of racially (African) based slavery
imposed in North America. What factors contributed to this development? How and why did this transformation occur?”
Write a 4-5 page paper that addresses the question posed above. In your response, be sure to base your claims on
materials read in the assigned readings (you do not need to read additional sources for this assignment.) I have
attached these readings here as well.
