Today in Labor History

Dec. 13, 1924
Samuel Gompers died at the age of 74. Gompers served as president of the American Federation of Labor from 1886 to 1894 and from 1895 to his death. What does labor want? Gompers said, “We want more schoolhouses and less jails; more books and less arsenals; more learning and less vice; more constant work and less crime; more leisure and less greed; more justice and less revenge; in fact more of the opportunities to cultivate our better natures, to make manhood more noble, womanhood more beautiful and childhood more happy and bright.”
