The international uproar over Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's
anti-collective bargaining law and Michigan Governor Rick Snyder's austerity
measures has provoked a renewed interest in unions and worker activism.
However, traditional business unions and political parties lack the will,
structure, and inspiration to organize this generation's working class.

People all over the world are finding that the I.W.W. offers an empowering
alternative because of its democratic, grass-roots structure and its support
of workers in the retail and service industries. Unlike typical top-down
party politics and establishment unions, I.W.W. serves a vehicle for
solidarity and mutual support among worker-activists who want to take
immediate concrete action to achieve better wages, terms, and conditions for
themselves and their fellow workers.
