Labor is not fighting for a larger slice of the national pie. Labor is fighting for a larger pie.Walter Reuther
We have a saying in the union: "If a fellow looks like a duck and quacks like a duck and walks like a duck, the possibility is that he is a duck." That is the way with a Communist. If the guy does everything that the party does, the prospects are very good that he is a party member or fellow traveler.Walter Reuther
