Labor quote for the week: William O. Douglas, U. S. Supreme Court justice

"The American ideal was stated by Emerson in his essay on politics. A man has a right to be employed, to be trusted, to be loved, to be revered. It does many men little good to stay alive and free and propertied, if they cannot work.

--William O. Douglas, U. S. Supreme Court justice, Dissent, Barsky v. Regents; 1954
