The circle reads, "Southern Clothing & Textile Workers Union..We Want Bread & Roses too." The center of the poster has a quote. It reads, "'Is it not much better to even die fighting for something than to have lived an uneventful life never gotten anything and leaving conditions the same or worse than they were and to have future generations go through the same misery and poverty and degradation? The only people whose names are recorded in History are those who did something. The peaceful and indifferent are forgotten; they never know the fighting joy of living.' Elizabeth Gurley Flynn 1917."
