How can I relate the history of the Molly Maguires to today?

Hi, I wrote an essay on the Molly Maguires, a group of Irish miners that got executed, but I'm supposed to write a small paragraph on how it is connected to today's world. Can you help me connect it to today's current events?

Why did the miners get executed?


Sierra D.

The Molly Maguires were a group of Irish mine workers who tried to
jump-start a labor movement. It was a violent time, when working the
mines meant long, dangerous days for little pay. In the process, people turned up dead. And the Molly Maguires were
fingered for the crimes.
