  • The deportation of IWW strikers, July 1917. War mobilization led union leaders like Samuel Gompers to seek a balance between the need for industrial production and the fair treatment of laboring men and women. Gompers was put on the National War Labor Board, promising to prevent strikes, and during the war many of labor's goals sought by the social justice reformers of the Progressive era became Board policy: an eight-hour day in war industries, and protection of the right of labor to organize. Union membership grew from 2.5 million members in 1916 to 4 million in 1919. But not all laborers supported the war effort. Despite Gompers' moratorium on strikes, rebellious locals and the Industrial Workers of the World participated in more than 6,000 strikes in protest against working conditions and inflation. The IWW also campaigned against the draft. Many IWW members were German immigrants, and the army raided western mining camps on the pretext of searching out enemy aliens, crushed strikes there, and deported or jailed IWW leaders.
