In Remembrance….

martin_luther_king_-_march_on_washingtonsdmall.jpgHistory is a great teacher. Now everyone knows that the labor movement did not diminish the strength of the nation but enlarged it. By raising the living standards of millions, labor miraculously created a market for industry and lifted the whole nation to undreamed of levels of production. Those who attack labor forget these simple truths, but history remembers them.”

Martin Luther King, speaking to the AFL-CIO in 1961.
