Just a couple of years ago, Amanda was spending some quality time with Ryann, creating all of the photography for Spruce: A Step-by-Step Guide to Upholstery. Ryann — who specializes in shooting architecture and interiors — was asked by our publisher Storey to shoot all of the photography for the Spruce book. After months of working together, Amanda developed a close bond with Ryann, and we consider her an unofficial Sprucette.
Regardless of gender roles, men and women came together to create IWW. Post-industrial theorists concentrated on hierarchies of class, rather than those of gender and, like their predecessors, the new theorists of technology also fail to consider whether this technological revolution might have a different impact on women and men.
In particular, the IWW was organized because of the belief among many unionists, socialists, anarchists, Marxists, and radicals that the AFL not only had failed to effectively organize the U.
The Wobblies believed that all workers should organize as a class, a philosophy which is still reflected in the Preamble to the current IWW Constitution: The working class and the employing class have nothing in common. There can be no peace so long as hunger and want are found among millions of the working people and the few, who make up the employing class, have all the good things of life.
Between these two classes a struggle must go on until the workers of the world organize as a class, take possession of the means of production, abolish the wage system, and live in harmony with the Earth.
We find that the centering of the management of industries into fewer and fewer hands makes the trade unions unable to cope with the ever growing power of the employing class.
The trade unions foster a state of affairs which allows one set of workers to be pitted against another set of workers in the same industry, thereby helping defeat one another in wage wars. Moreover, the trade unions aid the employing class to mislead the workers into the belief that the working class have interests in common with their employers.
These conditions can be changed and the interest of the working class upheld only by an organization formed in such a way that all its members in any one industry, or in all industries if necessary, cease work whenever a strike or lockout is on in any department thereof, thus making an injury to one an injury to all.
The army of production must be organized, not only for everyday struggle with capitalists, but also to carry on production when capitalism shall have been overthrown. By organizing industrially we are forming the structure of the new society within the shell of the old. The Wobblies, as they were informally known, differed from other union movements of the time by promotion of industrial unionismas opposed to the craft unionism of the American Federation of Labor.
The IWW emphasized rank-and-file organization, as opposed to empowering leaders who would bargain with employers on behalf of workers. Though never developed in any detail, Wobblies envisioned the general strike as the means by which the wage system would be overthrown and a new economic system ushered in, one which emphasized people over profit, cooperation over competition.
Many of its early members were immigrants, and some, such as Carlo TrescaJoe Hill and Elizabeth Gurley Flynnrose to prominence in the leadership. Finns formed a sizeable portion of the immigrant IWW membership.
At its peak, it ran 10, copies per issue. Led by Ben Fletcheran African American, Local 8 had more than 5, members, the majority of whom were African American, along with more than a thousand immigrants primarily Lithuanians and PolesIrish Americans, and numerous white ethnics.
The IWW was condemned by politicians and the press, who saw them as a threat to the market systems as well as an effort to monopolize labor at a time when efforts to monopolize industries were being fought as anti-market.
Factory owners would employ means both non-violent sending in Salvation Army bands to drown out speakers and violent to disrupt their meetings.
Members were often arrested and sometimes killed for making public speeches, but this persecution only inspired activism.
The other faction, led by Vincent Saint John, William Trautmann, and Big Bill Haywood, believed that direct action in the form of strikespropagandaand boycotts was more likely to accomplish sustainable gains for working people; they were opposed to arbitration and to political affiliation.
The black cat symbol, created by IWW member Ralph Chaplin, is often used to signify sabotage or wildcat strikes.

Further fame was gained later that year, when they took their stand on free speech. The town of Spokane, Washington had outlawed street meetings, and arrested Elizabeth Gurley Flynn a Wobbly organizer, for breaking this ordinance.
The response was simple but effective: In Spokane, over people went to jail and four people died. The tactic of fighting for free speech to popularize the cause and preserve the right to organize openly was used effectively in FresnoAberdeenand other locations.David Chipperfield Architects, founded in , has four offices in London, Berlin, Milan and Shanghai.
