You must not forget that if low wages, long hours of employment and unbearable working conditions are signs of prosperity China and India would be the greatest commercial and industrial countries in the world." Download April 28, 1921 letter from Samuel Gompers, president of the AFL to J.H. Reiter at Havorford College about Congressional legislation to restrict immigration, in PDF format.
