GARMENT WORKERS PACK HALL
AT MASS MEETING
The paternal attitude of the em
ployers who endeavor to offset or
ganization of workers in the tailor
ing industry by supplying them with
welfare work was the keynote of the
addresses of the speakers at the mass
meeting held last night to an audi
ence that packed West End hall.
Jos. Schlossberg of New York, vice
pres. Amalgamated Clothing Workers
of America, was the principal speaker
and received an ociation from the
workers. He told of the struggle that
has been made intermittently for the
past twenty-five years to organize
tailors and how they have joined the
organization, won a strike, then left
the union only to have to be called
back again when conditions become
"I know with what distrust tailors
look upon unions," hesaid, "because
I have been with them in the tene
ments where they Tive-in New York
tand I have heard their views.
t "But into those same tenements
will go sociologists and philanthro
pists and preach to the -tailors that
they must be thrifty and industrious
if they are to succeed.
".Are they not industrious? 'They
work from early in the morning until
very late at night Are they not
thrifty? I have seen them eat stale
rolls because they cost less than fresh
ones. And the more thrifty and in
dustrious tailors are the less money
they get. If he can get along with
less-his wages are cut."
"Commenting on the bosses' em
ployment agency which was declared
a violation of the statutes of Illinois
by the senate committee that inves
tigated it, he pointed to the fact that
no action has been taken to destroy
the bosses' unlawful blacklisting
agency, but the supreme court used
the law, put on the statute books to
curb trusts, to take from working
men who had done nothing to com
pare with this conspiracy all they
have saved in years.
S. Levin of the A. C. W. of A
scathingly denounced the paternali
ism of the bosses.
"They are becoming the fathers of
your families," he said. "They are
promoting societies, creating unions
in the shops and making the foremen,
the heads of the bosses' unions.
"They give you a dance free of
charge. Why don't they give you
wages that will permit you to pay 25
cents to enter a dance hall that does
not bear the stamp of the bosses ? In
the bad times the workers must be
beggars and go to the employers for
charity. Men and women who clothe
the country have to beg for rags to
clothe themselves and their children.
"Without organization we can only
expect promises. They think we are ,
asleep and so they promise to give us
something after awhile,-but promises
don't pay rent, nor buy clothing, nor
food. They made you promise
when we were agitating in 1913, but
where are the promises now? You
are in a worse condition than you,
