Occasionally, someone says something about safety I find noteworthy. In honor of Workers Memorial Day on April 28, I’m highlighting a well-known but still poignant comment from a workers’ rights advocate.

“Pray for the dead and fight like hell for the living.”

Mary Harris “Mother” Jones, a staunch workers’ rights advocate during a period of industrial growth in the 19th and early 20th centuries

The opinions expressed in "Washington Wire" do not necessarily reflect those of the National Safety Council or affiliated local Chapters.
