A Creed for Labor
Not available online
TitleA Creed for Labor
AbstractWhen Charles J. MacGowan announced his retirement to inactive status as president of the boilermakers' union, he expressed to a friend his own personal philosophy of life. Today, when labor groups are exhibiting highly diverse objectives and types of leadership, the MacGowan words are worth repeating. This is what he said: 'There is no profit in hate; there is no progress when class is arrayed against class, but there is happiness and well-being for all of us when we co-operate for the common good of all. That, to me, spells the highest degree of patriotism. If I have been, in a small way, successful in promoting that philosophy, I have only done my duty and deserve no special praise therefor.'
