"Whatever there is of greatness in the United States or indeed in any other country, is due to labor.  The laborer is the author of all greatness and wealth.  Without labor there would be no government, and nothing to preserve".     President Ulysses S. Grant 1877

"We want a better America, an America that will give its citizens, first of all, a higher and higher standard of living so that no child will cry for food in the midst of plenty".  Sidney Hillman (1887-1946), first president of Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America (ACWA).

"Does anybody really think that auto plants or steel mills or coal mines would be better places to work today if there were no unions?  Does anybody think their own employer, be it a retail store or a factory or an insurance company or even a state highway department, wouldn't try to cut corners if it meant making or saving a few dollars more?"  Richard J. Perry, labor editor

"If I were a factory employee, a workman on the railroads or a wage earner of any sort, I would undoubtedly join the union of my trade.  If I disapproved of its policy, if the union leaders were dishonest, I would join in order to put them out.  I believe in the union and I believe that all men who are benefited by the union are morally bound to help to the extent of their power in the common interests advanced by the union".  President Theodore Roosevelt

"Every successful social movement in history, including the civil-rights movement, was run by young people.  If the labor movement is going to succeed and grow again, they need to be a big part of it".   Richard Bensinger, AFL-CIO educator

"The merchandisers of 'right to work' are fond of packaging their proposal in the name of individual liberty.  What right-to-work has meant wherever it has appeared is lower wages and benefits and substandard legal protection for workers and their families".   Joseph Faherty, president Mass. AFL-CIO
