This is reflected in a resurgent fundamentalism, reformist in its own way of seeking to restore the older norms of American life. This constraint is rooted in the American system of exclusive representation, which divides workers into thousands of bargaining unit boxes, gives unions property interests in particular boxes, and penalizes unions for doing anything other than defending existing boxes and acquiring new ones.

They became a new blended ethnic group with a new language that was not their own: In the nineteenth century the struggle between English-speaking Catholics, predominantly Irish, and non-English-speaking Catholic immigrants from continental Europe led to the decisive victory of the English language over the ethnic churches that tried to preserve their original languages and were forced by the Irish-dominated Catholic Hierarchy as well as by historical circumstances to abandon their languages for English.The Appalachian people, Italian-Americans, Irish-Americans, and Cajuns are examples of this.
