Coisas a não esquecer (III)

«[W]ages - I'm talking about real wages - can, in the long run, only be increased if improved methods of production and economic organization create the necessary conditions...To think that the influence of the unions exclusively can decide the wages is as wrong as when the rooster believes that the sun rises because his crowing. If the unions can arrange so that at every point in time, workers will receive what they are entitled to from prodution, then they have fulfilled every reasonble claim».

Palavras de Edvard Johnson, secretário-geral da LO (Landsorganisationen), a poderosa confederação sindical sueca, num congresso da mesma em 1926
