6. It's probably due to the fact that corporate interests generally publish history textbooks nowadays.
I mean, most Americans are basically unaware of American labor history except the existence of Labor Day as a holiday. There is no historical awareness of their own labor history. I don't ever recall something so stark and alarming when I learned US history from my text books in high school. I believe the Business Plot did not exist in my text. I only found out from researching various left wing movements in American history and worldwide in my college years. It was natural that the search also included reactions to left-wing movements, and that is where I stumbled upon this almost-forgotten aspect of American history.
