Such a perspective naturally carries the implication that the American working class will pass through a social reformist stage, even though this is also most likely to occur in a special American form and at a truly American rate of speed. In these cases, they may be negotiating for white-collar or professional workers, such as physicians, engineers or teachers. This argument has been echoed through out history. This situation was superimposed on the overall growth of industry across the country.
