Here’s today's labor history:
On this date in 1933, the Screen Actors Guild held its first meeting. The Guild merged with the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists in 2012 and now represents 160,000 media professionals, from actors to dancers, and puppeteers to stunt performers.
Today’s labor quote is by actor and comedian Eddie Cantor, who was president of the Screen Actors Guild from 1933 to 1935. Eddie Cantor, who said:
"If you stand together, you cannot lose. Actors cannot be beaten except by actors. The Guild is for you, and you must be for the Guild. Stand together.”
