Synopsis
"The Wobblies" was the nickname of the International Workers of the World, a rival of the American Federation of Labor during the early 20th century, but a smaller, less mainstream union. Membership included several minority groups who were fighting prejudice, and the group was frequently considered left-leaning because it championed unpopular social issues, and because their leadership included some socialists. Two strikes are recounted, and surviving members of the union share information and their memorabilia.
