Here’s today's labor history:
On this date in 1925, the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters was founded at a meeting in New York City. The union's first organizer was A. Philip Randolph, launching his long career as a leader in the American labor movement, the civil rights movement, and socialist political parties.
Today’s labor quote is by A. Philip Randolph, who said:
“Nothing counts but pressure, pressure, more pressure, and still more pressure through broad organized aggressive mass action.”
