Famous quotes containing the word wage:

    Nations like the Cuban and the Swiss
    Can never hope to wage a Global Mission.
    No Holy Wars for them. The most the small
    Can ever give us is a nuisance brawl.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    I think it is a wise course for laborers to unite to defend their interests.... I think the employer who declines to deal with organized labor and to recognize it as a proper element in the settlement of wage controversies is behind the times.... Of course, when organized labor permits itself to sympathize with violent methods or undue duress, it is not entitled to our sympathy.
    William Howard Taft (1857–1930)

    The matter of consulting experienced workers, of keeping all the workers informed of changes in production and wage methods, and how the changes are arrived at, seems to me the most important duty in the whole field of management.
    Mary Barnett Gilson (1877–?)
