Some words from King on labor for you today:
"The labor movement was the principal force that transformed misery and despair into hope and progress. Out of its bold struggles, economic and social reform gave birth to unemployment insurance, old-age pensions, government relief for the destitute and, above all, new wage levels that meant not mere survival but a tolerable life. The captains of industry did not lead this transformation; they resisted it until they were overcome. When in the thirties the wave of union organization crested over the nation, it carried to secure shores not only itself but the whole society."
—Speech to the state convention of the Illinois AFL-CIO, Oct. 7, 1965

“I am not an optimist because I am not sure everything ends well. Nor am I a pessimist because I am not sure everything ends badly. I just carry hope in my heart. Hope is the feeling that life and work have meaning. And you can have it regardless of the state of the world that surrounds you. Life without hope is empty, boring and useless. I could not imagine that I could strive for something if I did not carry hope in me. It is as big a gift as life itself.”
