FDR In A Union?

I have recently found a labor-related website that includes, among many things, quotes about labor and unions from famous Americans, both past and present.

I thought that I would occasionally post some quotes from these folks. Perhaps you’ll be surprised, as I was, at the different people who supported labor and what they said in support of working men and women and unions.

The first quote that I’ll share with you in from Franklin D. Roosevelt.

If I were a worker in a factory, the first thing I would do would be to join a union.”


The website where the labor quotes is found is the American Labor Studies Center.
