Industrial Workers Of The World Day - June 27

The Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) is an international trade union formed in the United States on June 27, 1905.
The organization had industry workers and their goal was to unite them and take care of them. They worked to abolish the accepted wage system and instead adopt a method of distributing profits among all workers. They support the democratic self-management model, according to which employees elect their managers and participate in the organizational decisions of their workplace.

In slang, members of the organization are called "Wobblies".
The peak of the organization was in 1923 when it had 40,000 employees. After the American administration opposed him and fought against him between 1917 and 1924, in severe government repression called the "Red Intimidation", as part of the policy of the American administration, which saw communism as a threat to the foundations of democratic society, there was a decline in its power.
In 1924, as a result of internal debates about the principles of the organization and how it would operate in the future. As a result of these events, the organization was unable to replicate its influence and achievements and remained a relatively negligible body from the 1940s onwards, although it has remained active to this day and numbers only about 5,000 members in the United States as of 2005.

Membership in the organization is open to all employees. Any employee can join the organization, even if his workplace is not part of it, and even if he is a member of another organization. Link to IWW
