The Labor Movement

Themes: Labor, Organizing

This “Labor Movement” poster features the demands and victories of the Labor Movement over the decades and the words of Frederick Douglass:

Power concedes nothing without a demand — it never has, and it never will.

Artist Ricardo Levins Morales explains:

The social gains of humanity did not invent themselves and will not defend themselves. Only organized people can do that.
