Lincoln must certainly have felt strongly about this, having derived his remarks to Congress almost entirely from a speech he made at the 1859 Wisconsin State Fair. We had a pretty good discussion here last Labor Day.

Another one of my Lincoln favorites: "All that harms labor is treason to America. No line can be drawn between these two. If any man tells you he loves America, yet he hates labor, he is a liar. If a man tells you he trusts America, yet fears labor, he is a fool."
