Cesar Chavez – Union

The Tiger

I’ve never understood the hatred of Unions in modern society and my reading of Cesar Chavez’s writings have helped strengthen my appreciation of the role of unions. He was a civil rights and Union activist who helped found the National Farm Workers Association and is one of the patron saints of the labor movement. 

A lot of the gains he helped win are being slowly rolled back, however, which is a timely reminder that it is not always enough to win, you must also sustain.

Greatest quote:
From the depth of need and despair, people can work together, can organize themselves to solve their own problems and fill their own needs with dignity and strength
