1905 · The Industrial Workers of the World

Age 21

The Industrial Workers of the World was founded after a convention was held by radical trade unionists from all over the United States who opposed the policies of the American Federation of Labor. The IWW opposed the American Federation of Labor's acceptance of capitalism and its refusal to include unskilled workers in craft unions. The convention took place on June 24 and was referred by the workers as the Industrial Congress or the Industrial Union Convention. The IWW aimed to promote worker solidarity in the revolutionary struggle to overthrow the employing class.

Name Meaning

English: from Middle English sturgeon ‘sturgeon’ (a reduced form of Old French estourgeon), hence a metonymic occupational name for a fisherman or seller of these fish, or possibly a nickname for someone thought to resemble a sturgeon.
