Here’s today’s labor history:
On this date in 1913, the Ford Motor Company introduced the continuous moving assembly line, which could produce a complete car every two-and-a-half minutes.
In 1930, Kellogg cereal adopted the 6-hour day.
And on this date in 1955, African-American Rosa Parks refused to go to the back of a Montgomery, Alabama bus, fueling the growing civil rights movement's campaign to win desegregation and end the deep South's "Jim Crow" laws.
Today’s labor quote is by Rosa Parks, who said:
“My only concern was to get home after a hard day's work.”
Rosa Parks, who said, “I would like to be remembered as a person who wanted to be free... so other people would be also free.”
