1950 · Start of the Korean War

Age 1

The Korean War was a civil war between North and South Korea. North Korea had support of China and the Soviet Union while South Korea gained support from the United States. The war broke out as a product of the Cold War because of the different ideologies that each side had for what government is. The fighting stopped when an armistice was signed but no peace treaty was ever established. To some the war is still progressing but it is in a stage of frozen conflict.
1950 · Reuther's Treaty of Detroit

Age 1

This five-year contract was made in effort to negotiate between the United Auto Workers and General Motors. With the treaty the workers also reached similar deals with other automakers. When the workers agreed to the contract, they gave up the right to bargain over some issues in exchange for extensive health, unemployment, pension benefits, expanded vacation time, and adjustments to wages. The contract shaped labor-management relations in the auto industry for decades, and it was used as a model for labor-corporation agreements in a variety of other industries.
