Here’s today's labor history:
On this date in 1894, rail union leader Eugene V. Debs was arrested during the Pullman strike, described by the New York Times as "a struggle between the greatest and most important labor organization and the entire railroad capital" that involved some 250,000 workers in 27 states at its peak.
Today’s labor quote is by Eugene Victor Debs, who said
“I would not be a capitalist; I would be a man; you cannot be both at the same time.”
