Here’s today's labor history:
On this date in 1899, delegates to the AFL convention in Salt Lake City endorsed a constitutional amendment to give women the right to vote.
Today’s labor quote is by Sojourner Truth, who said:
“You have been having our rights so long, that you think, like a slave-holder, that you own us. I know that it is hard for one who has held the reins for so long to give up; it cuts like a knife. It will feel all the better when it closes up again.”
