Struck by all the injustice and tragedy going on. He becomes active in the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) union,. It is forbidden to demonstrate and to speak in public but Joe gets around that by singing his manifests with the Salvation Army. He manages to get more and more people to go on strike with him but he also makes powerful enemies. Until finally he is accused of a murder, which to this day many believe was a fit-up.
