Labor History in 2:00

January 27 - Working Class Stamps

January 27, 2020

On this day in Labor History the year was 1950. The cost of a first-class stamp was three cents. 

And starting on this day, one of the options for first class postage bore the image of US labor leader Samuel Gompers. 

The British-born Gompers was a founder and long-time head of the American Federation of Labor.
