Jensen has asserted that the IWW had a "rule or ruin" policy, under which it attempted to wreck local unions which it could not control. From 1908 to 1921, Jensen and others have written, the IWW attempted to win power in WFM locals which had once formed the federation's backbone. When it could not do so, IWW agitators undermined WFM locals

Jerome, Arizona

'''Jerome''' is a town in the Black Hills (Black Hills (Yavapai County)) of Yavapai County (Yavapai County, Arizona) in the State (U.S. state) of Arizona. Founded in the late 19th century on Cleopatra Hill overlooking the Verde Valley, it is more than north of Phoenix (Phoenix, Arizona) along State Route 89A (Arizona State Route 89A) between Sedona (Sedona, Arizona) and Prescott (Prescott, Arizona). Supported in its heyday by rich copper mines, it was home to more than 10,000 people in the 1920s. As of the 2010 census (2010 United States Census), its population was 444.

The town owes its existence mainly to two ore bodies that formed about 1.75 billion years ago along a ring fault (Fault (geology)) in the caldera of an undersea volcano. Tectonic plate movements, plate collisions, uplift (Tectonic uplift), deposition, erosion, and other geologic processes eventually exposed the tip of one of the ore bodies and pushed the other close to the surface, both near Jerome. In the late 19th century, the United Verde Mine, developed by William A. Clark, extracted ore bearing copper, gold, silver, and other metals from the larger of the two. The United Verde Extension (UVX) Mine, owned by James Douglas, Jr., depended on the other huge deposit. In total, the copper deposits discovered in the vicinity of Jerome were among the richest ever found in any time or place.

Jerome made news in 1917, when strikes involving the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) led to the expulsion at gunpoint of about 60 IWW members, who were loaded on a cattle car and shipped west. Production at the mines, always subject to fluctuations for various reasons, boomed during World War I, fell thereafter, rose again, then fell again during and after the Great Depression. As the ore deposits became exhausted, the mines closed, and the population dwindled to fewer than 100 by the mid-1950s. Efforts to save the town from oblivion succeeded when residents turned to tourism and retail sales. Jerome became a National Historic Landmark in 1967. In the early 21st century, Jerome has art galleries, coffee houses, restaurants, wineries, and a state park and local museum devoted to mining history.
