I've seriously messed up doing the trade union question over women. How did you even structure it? What even was the counter argument other than Cleveland was a bad president too because he sent troops into Pullman????

Same here . It was difficult in my opinion as it was limiting candidates to write about Presidents only whilst ensuring they were the ones in opposition (which is quite rare overall).

I spoke about:

right to strike (Reagan PATCO 1981 vs Cleveland Pullman 1894); how they were similar but Cleveland started the whole mess.

collective bargaining (Reagan pre - PATCO 1981 with no strike contracts etc similar to yellow dog etc vs Truman's Taft-Hartley Act 1947); Truman more important as he reinstated the whole concept of yellow-dog

working conditions (Reagan causes of PATCO 1981 vs Cleveland); Cleveland didn't do anything vs Reagan who reduced working hours etc

Not sure I did so well though
