|"If I would be a young man again and had to decide how to make my living, I would not try to become a scientist or scholar or teacher. I would rather choose to be a plumber or a peddler in the hope to find that modest degree of independence still available under present circumstances."
-- Albert Einstein, The Reporter, 18 November 1954
Shortly after making this remark, the Plumbers and Steamfitters Union, A.F.L. in Washington, D.C. voted to grant Einstein an honorary membership. Einstein was reportedly well pleased with this honor.
"When you consider the contributions that plumbing and sanitation make to the quality of all of our lives,
then much of the other things that we do just seem so much less significant.
My goal is for us to provide top quality plumbing products, with fair, low prices,
with the best service, sent to the most people that we can."
