Interest-based bargaining is a method in which it enables negotiators to realize that common interests exist and enables joint-problem solving to exist under a more traditional negotiation (Federal Mediation & Conciliation Services, n.d.). Whereas, distributive bargaining is when a fixed amount of resource exists, and because both parties want the same resources they must be divided and distributed among the two. This method is used when both parties do not foresee the need for a relationship to exist and the interaction is a one-time occurrence (Marzec, n.d.). When it came to the negotiations between the Union and the Company in this situation, an interest-based bargaining method was utilized. A relationship needed to be established between the two parties, because the potential for future negotiations to exist remains due to the nature of the two parties. Being able to realize that each side had common interests, it could enable an agreement to come together without either side having to give something
“It is the refusal of employers to grant such reasonable conditions and to deal with their employees through collective bargaining that leads to widespread labor unrest. The strikes which have broken out… especially in the automobile industry, are due to such “employee trouble.” (Document G)

A lone yellow stagecoach tracks across the Missouri sands, pulled by two exhausted, well groomed horses. The sharp crack of a whip is heard, and shouts of “Giddyup!” echo from the coachman. Inside, a passenger sits patiently, a stack of mail and goods beside him. A cloud of dust rises up behind the coach, and the constant motion of the wheels kicks up small rocks that fly like bullets.
In 1938, the Fair Labor Standards Act was created to establish a minimum federal wage to serve as a standard wage to reduce poverty and to secure economic growth is shared across the workforce. Today minimum wage is far below its historical levels and loses its value every year due to inflation. The minimum wage workforces are living close to poverty levels, and insist on the government raising the minimum wage. Sometimes the fight to raise the pay for workers goes unnoticed or unheard, so a labor union is formed. With a bargaining union handling the employee’s best interest, the workers usually improve their wages and quality of life. In this paper we will discuss minimum wage laws and labor unions.

The Industrial Revolution marked a switch from mainly an agrarian economy to standardized, mass production economy. Businesses increasingly focused on mechanizing and streamlining the production process by employing high-powered machinery and reducing workers to interchangeable parts. As a result, it often created poor employment and living conditions for the poor, newly arrived immigrants and the working classes; this, finally, gave rise to labor unions. The labor unions fought for higher wages, safe working conditions and fair working hours. Yet, a business's main goal is to maximize its revenue by either reducing the cost of producing goods and services, or increasing the sales of its goods and services. In the case of reducing production costs, how can a business and its union employees come to terms with balancing both their needs and desires? Because, often, the interests of companies and union workers collide, and for them to reach a settlement is a major challenge, like in the case of Postal office and its union workers.
On the four year anniversary of the “fight for $15” campaign. The authors Daniel Victor and Noam Scheiber wrote about how protesters many of them being employees from different companies, industries, and states took a political stand over minimum wage increase; but it wasn’t only about that it was also about employees aspiring to unionize and treatment at the workplace.

We learned scarcity exists when we have unlimited wants but only limited resources available to fulfill those wants; and a tradeoffs is giving up something in order to get something else; ex: from class was when you asked us what we would be doing if we weren't in your economics
