robbed from the agricultural workers.
Perhaps never in the history of the world was there a war more unequal,
or a success more unexpected.

From the International Socialist Review: No Budget, No Problem for the Agricultural Workers' Organization
From the Review of December 1915:
A NEW CHAPTER IN INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTIONBy J. A. Macdonald
THIS is the story of the success of the Agricultural Workers' organization. This story is not finished, it cannot be till the doomed industrial system of today has also been damned and over thrown. It is the story of the moving of the propaganda of revolutionary industrial unionism from the open forum and the street corner, to the primary theater of the industrial revolution—the job.
The wise men of the labor movement—generally too wise to work—the philosophers of the easy chair and the big salary, said the migratory worker could not be organized. They said the work was too casual. A union for them would have to be too migratory. It would have to have its office in a box car.
