4. Thank you, Industrial Workers!

June 27 is Industrial Workers of the World Day. This day, set aside to honor the millions of factory and other industrial workers around the world began in 1905 when a few hundred people founded the International Workers of the World (IWW) association in Chicago. The group, also called the "wobblies," was instrumental in securing fairer wages, shorter hours, and better and safer working conditions for the people who labored in America's and the world's factories. The organization continues to work to correct inequities in the industrial workplace, such as securing equal pay for equal work for men and women.
