SpongeBob UnionPants

An episode of Spongebob this morning (which I had seen five or six times previously) brought up some interesting issues. It reminded me of my favorite labor-related quote, spoken by Senator Wagner (author of the Wagner Act which created the National Labor Relations Board, and together with two other amendments is known as the National Labor Relations Act). Wagner said:

Let men become the servile pawns of their masters in the factories of the land and there will be destroyed the bone and sinew of resistance to political dictatorship. Fascism begins in industry, not in government.

Amen, Senator Wagner.
