And it was there sacrifice that gave us some of the rights we have
A grassroots organization that fought for equality and safe working conditions, the Wobblies also had ties to women's rights and socialism. And it was there sacrifice that gave us some of the rights we have. But what was more important than the 8 hour work day, child labor laws, and other rights the IWW struggled to give us, was the inspiration and example of commitment to justice, love and solidarity for each other, and an uncompromising attitude in the face of brutal repression and persecution.

For today’s radicals, the IWW has a powerful mystique since many of the leading figures were martyrs to the cause, including the hobo and folksinger Joe Hill.
