Celebrate with fellow industrial workers and unite to celebrate solidarity and to demand better treatment from employers.
Industrial jobs focus on the production of industrial goods during the manufacturing process. It typically involves factory work of assembling, mixing, storing, warehousing, and shipping. Industrial Workers are highly hands on. Industries include timber, paper, food and drink, textiles, chemicals, plastics and any manufacturing industry that generates products.
Factory jobs have a reputation for being often dangerous and dirty, with long hours and little pay. Many laws are now in place to protect industrial workers, but they still do the grunt work in a factory and deserve to be paid and treated with respect. Industrial workers are an important part of the workforce. They build and maintain machines, keep factories running, and produce the goods we use every day. Their jobs may not be as dangerous or dirty as they once were, but they are still essential to the economy.
Give a shout out today on Industrial Workers of the World Day to anyone you know who works as an industrial worker!
