CHAPTER 4
Work and Play

Labor

1 The fight for unionization concerns the businessman, the doctor, the lawyer and other professional folk, because their fate is tied up directly with the fate of the working man. They cannot exist except with the money made by the working man.

—ELLA BAKER, BLACK CIVIL RIGHTS LEADER

2 Our labor is designed to maintain the values of our economy … Not human values but the values of the system that rules us.

—WALTER MOSLEY, BLACK NOVELIST

3 I cannot conceive of an effective and progressive coalition which does not include the labor movement.

—BAYARD RUSTIN, BLACK CIVIL RIGHTS ACTIVIST

4 The young people saw the situation—no time with their mothers because of long hours, their mothers complaining of injuries, having to get part-time jobs themselves. They saw connections between their experiences and their mothers' experiences.

—STACY KONO, ASIAN AMERICAN ORGANIZER
