545 |a The Socialist Labor Party of America was founded in 1877. The organization's membership was initially primarily German immigrants. The organization was plagued with factional disputes and alternated between supporting mainstream candidates for national public office and offering alternative candidates. The membership contained a variety of labor groups and exerted considerable influence in the development of the early twentieth century labor movement, particularly in the garment industry. Factional disagreements led to a schism in 1899, when many dissenters formed the Socialist Party. The Socialist Labor Party then declined.
