YouTube Selection: The History Of The American Company Town

Towns formed by corporations are as old as the nation. Are they still around? Educational YouTube channel Knowing Better explains.

The Company Town:  the town founded and run by corporations for their employees to live in, and to one degree or another to allow corporations to control what their employees do.  Those are all gone in America these days, right?

YouTube channel Knowing Better, which focuses on history education, explains their history and whether or not they’re still around.

Knowing Better’s host actually intended to have this video out for Christmas but couldn’t, so the timing may be a wee bit off, but he is talking (mostly) about America, so are these towns still around or not?  See below for details.
