Incorporating interviews and archival footage, The Wobblies presents the story of the Industrial Workers of the World (or I.W.W.), which in the early 20th century managed to organize various categories of unskilled worker into a single monolithic union and changed the course of labor history by, among other achievements, facilitating the eight-hour work day and fair wages.
