Too often have we in America taken necessities from the masses

to give luxuries to the classes. Have we been all together fair to the laboring man, that man who has to work sometimes until his hands are all but porched and his eyebrows all but scorched? Our failure to give the laboring man a fair break is the very reason why capitalism is on her death-bed in America. — MLK, “The Task of Christian Leadership Training for Education in the Local Community,” 1955
