Labor Quote of the Day: Clara Lemlich
"I have listened to all the speakers, and I have no further patience for talk. I am a working girl, one of those striking against intolerable conditions. I am tired of listening to speakers who talk in generalities. What we are here for is to decide whether or not to strike. I make a motion that we go out in a general strike." - Lemlich (right) was a garment worker involved in a strike agains the Traingle Shirtwaist Co. (see Today's Labor History)
