Today’s labor quote is by William O. Douglas
“The right to work, I had assumed, was the most precious liberty that man possesses. Man has indeed as much right to work as he has to live, to be free, to own property.”
William O. Douglas served as U. S. Supreme Court justice from 1939 to 1975; his term, lasting 36 years and 209 days, is the longest term in the history of the Supreme Court.
