UNEMPLOYED CAN'T SEE THE
SILK. STOCKING BUNCH PLAN
At the meeting of the unemployed
at Bowen Hall, Hull House, the fol
lowing resolution was unanimously
"We, the unemployed, go on record
as opposing and condemning the in
auguration of another institution of
helping to perpetuate a system that
does not solve the unemployed ques
tion." This was the answer of the jobless
to the proposed Brotherhood Asso
ciation of America, an organization
being formed by the rich, charitable
and social workers of Chicago.
"Their plan is to lay the ground
work of one of the -greatest money
making institutions in the country,"
said Frank Krause, national chair
man of the unemployed.
"We are not even called human
beings. They do not class us among
the respectable. They used to caU
us hoboes, bums and tramps, and
now thoy want to save our self-respect.
"It is an ideal business proposition.
There are institutions in this country
that have made hundreds of thou
sands of dollars. The more these
institutions thrive the larger the '
army of unemployed grows.
"When a poor fellow goes to them j
the worst crime he has committed is j
to be hungry and penniless. But be
fore he leaves, them he is compelled. (
to become a thief. They make him (
a thief because they rob him and ex-,
ploit him in the name of charity. And.
they call this saving his self-respect '
giving him nothing for nothing. f
"These people, Rosenthal and his
kind, see there is a field to get the .
money-out of the down-and-out,
and are going after it. They are
talking only of profit. It is not a hu- ,
manitarian proposition; they are not
considering us at all. They are go
ing to incorporate, sell stock, make -.
a profit only.
"They want to keep us on coffee
and bread and hold us dependent ,
upon their charity and goodness.
"Chicago should put the unemploy-.
ed at work. It would be a thousand
times better than letting a bunch of ,
parisites take advantage of this waste
for their own profit.
"In the city of Chicago there is a
waste of millions each year. If this ,
waste was handled by the city itself, '
the men put to work at good wage",
it would solve the unemployed prob-
lem and leave a surplus in the treas
ury. "The unemployed question is not "
for the ones in silks and satin to (
solve. The unemployed must solve it.
If they want to help let them come .
to us and aid us to solve our prob
lem, and not stand outside and tell ,
us how to do it." ;
"My young man's a real gent," said T
Liza of the East Side. "He never .
blows his soup like a- common per
son; he always fans it with his hat." .
