10 SHARE RELIEF Leader Holds Shifting of Burden to States Means Load on Wage Earners. A challenge to Congress that the United States Government must not shirk its share toward relief of unem ployment was made today by organized labor outside of the Federal service in a letter sent to each member by N. P. Alifas, representing the International Association of Machinists, affiliated with the American Federation of Labor. Emphasis is laid in this letter Of pro test that by approving the amendment made in order by a special rule Satur day on the agricultural appropriation bill,’ and which is to be applied to each of the departmental appropriation bills Congress would "serve notice on the seven million unemployed and their families, that in so far as the united States Government, is concerned, they shall not be employed until at least after July 1, 1933.” See* Greater Buying Power. In urging rejection of the amend ment. Mr. Alifas culls attention that according to eminent economists "every additional dollar spent by the Federal Government, for useful purposes, will produce In the course of a year five dollars additional purchasing power: and conversely, every dollar withheld by the Government will deepen the de pression bv five dollars per year: and every American citizen denied employ ment bv the Federal Government, will throw- but of employment four other men.” , , _ . Members are warned that the burden of caring for the unemployed falls upon the wage workers. "The workers of the United States, he points out, "Including Federal em ployes, have had already placed upon their shoulders mast of the burden of the unemployment situation. The 7 000,000 unemployed largely belong to poor families or those In moderate cir cumstances. Hence most wage workers who are fortunate enough to be work ing are obliged to support members of their families and relatives until they can secure work. This more than off sets the moderate lowering of retail prices. If Congress deprives the work ers of the slight advantage of a lower cost of living, either by reducing wages or curtailing opportunities of employ ment. an additional heavy blow will be struck the 7,000,000 unemployed and their families. Tax Shift Hurts Workers. “The widespread attempt to shift the burden of relieving unemployment from the Federal Government to the States or local communities again places the burden predominantly on the workers and farmers. State taxes and local taxes are generally based upon property valuation, but not on a graduated scale: so that the working man who owns a home is compelled to pay his propor tional share of State and local taxes. "On the other hand. Federal taxes are derived largely from incomes in excess of $3,500 a year: therefore, the bulk of wage earners and salaried em ployes are exempt from income tax. “Let us not, therefore, become con fused by the cry of ‘saving the tax payer,’ especially when the taxpayer being saved by curtailing Federal appro priations, is not the poor man but well to do individuals and corporations. “In addition to the above referred to burdeni of working peop’e (in being forced to assume the cost of our un employment problem), they have been liberal in their voluntary contributions to Community Chests, and it is safe to say that in the aggregate wage Woodward &Lothrop DOWN STAIRS STORE Prints...

"Wage earners comprise the farmer's principal market. Destroying the far mer’s market by withholding Federal appropriations used to create purchas ing power, will not help the farmer, but injure him. While the farmer pays high State and local taxes, his Federal tax is small, and. therefore, very little of the money appropriated by Congress Is derived either from the families of farmers or wage earners, even indirect ly. It is a moot question whether it, is possible to pass an income tax back to the consumer.” Before the Christian era Egyptians grew cotton that was superior to any being produced in the world today.
