MR. A MRS. CONSUMER
MR. SHIPPER A MR. FARMER
MR. A MRS. PASSENGER
You would foot the bill !
Look out! There's another big rail
road wagedemandheaded your way!
The non-operating unions alone
—whose members do not actually
operate trains —are demanding a
flat increase of 20 cents an hour.
These demands would cost the rail
roads of the country five hundred
t sixty-eight million dollars a year!
Last year these employes bad
an increase of 18V4 cents an
hour. This was their third major
wage increase since 1939. Their
average weekly pay has gone up
75%, as against a cosl-of-Iiving
rise of 54%.
Since 1939, railroad wage and
material costs have gone up more
than three times as much as freight
rates, and five times as much as
passenger fares. That is why in
1946, with thç largest peacetime
traffic in history, the net income of
railroads went down to the equiva
lent of only 2 H% of the net prop
erty investment.
What About 1947?
Even with the recent freight rate
increase, preliminary figures indi
cate that the railroads will make
only about the same low return in
1947 as in 1946. This will be because:
—the wage increase made in 1946
will be in effect for all of 1947;
—special payroll taxes on railroads
have recently been increased;
—and passenger traffic has decl i ned.
Where Would the Money
Come From ?
We can't pay out what we don't take
in. And we are not taking in enough
now to meet present costs and to
complete the improvements in serv
ice that you need and that we want to
give you.

You Would Foot the Bill!
