Today in Labor History

Dec. 13, 1924
Samuel Gompers died at the age of 74. Gompers served as president of the American Federation of Labor from 1886 to 1894 and from 1895 to his death. What does labor want? Gompers said, “We want more schoolhouses and less jails; more books and less arsenals; more learning and less vice; more constant work and less crime; more leisure and less greed; more justice and less revenge; in fact more of the opportunities to cultivate our better natures, to make manhood more noble, womanhood more beautiful and childhood more happy and bright.”

Teamster Scholarships

Teamsters kids are eligible for scholarships from two sources:

  • International Brotherhood of Teamsters Scholarship Fund  – Since 1966 the Union has awarded college scholarships to the dependents of Teamsters through this Fund. It awards ten 4-year scholarships worth $6,000 each, and fifteen additional 1-year scholarships, each worth $1,000.
  • James R. Hoffa Scholarship Fund – Created in 2000, the Hoffa Fund is a stand-alone charitable organization able to raise funds from a wide variety of sources, far more than can the Union's in-house scholarship, thus it is in a position to offer grants in keeping pace with tuition inflation. For instance, awards for the 2010-2011 academic year include thirty-one $10,000 and sixty-nine $1,000 scholarship grants.
