“Fellow workers, this is the Continental Congress of the working class.
We are here to confederate the workers of this country into a working class movement that shall have for its purpose the emancipation of the working class from the slave bondage of capitalism . . . .The aims and objects of this organization
should be to put the working class in possession of the economic power, the means of life, in control of production and distribution, without regard to capitalist masters.”
from a 1905 convention speech given by union leader Bill Haywood Add a Tooltip Text
