Samuel Gompers – “What Does Labor Want?”

What does labor want?

We want more schoolhouses and less jails;

more books and less arsenals;

more learning and less vice;

more leisure and less greed;

more justice and less revenge;

in fact, more of the opportunities to cultivate our better natures, to make manhood more noble, womanhood more beautiful, and childhood more happy and bright.”

― Samuel Gompers
