Today's Labor Quote: William Smith
“If you do not organize, and expect to get the cooperation of the citizens in general, you may wake up some fine morning and find that the citizens in general do not respond to your request. You know that the moneyed class will never hand you anything without a hard fight for it; therefore, if the class to which you belong should not cooperate with you in an unorganized body, you should not blame anyone but yourself.”
Smith was Secretary-Treasurer of the IAFF from 1918-1920.
