Hall of Honor Inductee: James P. Mitchell

James P. Mitchell

James P. Mitchell (1900 — 1964)

"It is intolerable and indecent for a society to produce by overworking and underpaying human beings."

In both business and government, James P. Mitchell was a staunch advocate of human relations and the practice of constructive collective bargaining based on genuine concern for the worker. An active supporter of civil rights, he led efforts to raise the minimum wage, aid migrant workers, extend skills training throughout the workforce and ensure the integrity of the labor-management process.
