“All that serves labor serves the nation. All that harms is treason…If a man tells you he loves America, yet hates labor, he is a liar…There is no America without labor, and to fleece one is to rob the other.” – Abraham Lincoln
“Only a fool would try to deprive working men and women of the right to join the union of their choice.” – Dwight D. Eisenhower
“It was the labor movement that helped secure so much of what we take for granted today. The 40-hour work week, the minimum wage, family leave, health insurance, Social Security, Medicare, retirement plans. The cornerstones of the middle-class security all bear the union label.” – Barack Obama.
