labor turnover is being caused in

rates and workers failing to earn the
minimum wage, Organizer Alfred
Hoffman, of the American Federation

mum or be discharged. Considerable
unrest is evidenced, hut the nearness
of Christmas is holding the revolt

Will Bring Prosperity, Ssys
Wilmington, Del.—John C. Saylor,
editor of the Wilmington Labor Her
ald, and president of the Central La
bor Union here, told a radio audience
of the benefits organized workers
can secure under the national recov
ery act, back of which, he declared,
is a plan to put unemployed men and
women back at profitable jobs. He
said, in part:
"The men and women of labor are
not satisfied to have their food, shel
ter, fuel and necessities of life doled
out to them. They want work. They,
who are not employed at present, are
still hopeful because they know the
president, General Johnson and the
leaders at Washington are trying.
Trying is much better than wishing.
'It is a fact, too, that the nation's
unemployment is being lessened. Here
in our community, workers are re
suming their regular employment.
Our community is losing its pitiful /,
relief' complex. We. are thinking of
work now. n
'Our faith and Confidence in the.

unlimited. We see behind it a square

Mr. Saylor, who speaks as a mem-v
ber of the State Recovery Board, alsoi I
urged the necessity of complete sup-V

selves, we must patronize those who
