A wonderful collection of quotations on work, labor and unionism, drawn almost entirely from the American labor movement. If you ever have to give a speech, write a paper, or just plain get inspiration, this book is for you. More than 1,300 quotations are divided into 17 chapters (such as, “This Working Life,” “Bread and Butter,” “Strife and Strike”), interspersed with cartoons, photos and brief biographies of labor greats. Includes quotes from some notorious bosses, too (“I can hire one-half the working class to kill the other half,” said railroad owner Jay Gould on not worrying about a strike in 1886). Nicely indexed so you can find just what you’re looking for. 306 pages paperback
