Today’s Labor Quote: Jerry Wurf
"It’s not without faults, flaws, shortcomings, but (the labor movement) is the best guarantee we have (to) preserve the right of workers to have an input into the society, that an elite or those who have money and power, don't control the society totally."
Wurf was born on May 18, 1919; he served as president of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees from 1964 to 1981. The union grew from about 220,000 members to more than 1 million during his presidency.
