SAT Subject US History Practice Question 1098: Answer and Explanation
1. Which of the following organizations, born in the 1930s, focused on organizing unskilled workers?
A. Congress of Industrial Organizations
B. Industrial Workers of the World
C. Knights of Labor
D. American Federation of Labor
E. Communist Party
Correct Answer: A
The Congress of Industrial Organizations focused on organizing unskilled workers. While the Industrial Workers of the World and the Knights of Labor did attempt to organize unskilled workers, both of those choices, as well as the AFL, date back to the 19th century. The Communist Party was a political group in the 1930s, not a union, although it supported organized labor.
