Harold C. Livesay Quotes
“[Samuel] Gompers saw as few others did that in America labor must shape itself to the contours of its society rather than try to remake society. He realized that Americans workers endorsed principles that they carried with them everywhere, even to work. Donning overalls wrought no magic transformation of the multifaceted work force into a single-minded body. To succeed, any labor movement would have to take the workers as they came, accept their principles, and weave them into a whole fabric.”
