****, /' X "*> j <•* l' .• ._ AFTER THE WAR—AMERICA FIRST The creation of right relations between wage-earner and employer is our most important duty. Honest co-operation between these two must mean good times for all of us who live under the American flag. Nobody who thinks wants to see industrial discord. The hand of friendship has been held out to Labor by spokesmen for Capital at the Reconstruction Congress at Altantic City and at other gather- ' ings of big employers. All of these men pledge themselves to work for co-operation and brotherhood in an industrial democracy. Labor can stand on its war record, for in none of the Allied countries did organized labor come so promptly to the support of the government as here. The co-operation of labor means more to industry than any other one factor. And it is a co-operation that is above price, for we are fortunate beyond all other nations in the character and the skill of our workmen. | United We Stand-Divided We Fall To-day the moral of the American wage-earner is higher than before. He is as eager as any capitalist to enter upon an era of harmonious industrial relations. We in this country are making to-day 427 articles that were not made here before the war. For the first time in her history, America is standing on her own feet industrially, manufacturing almost every product that her people use, and exporting articles that five years ago were exclusively of foreign make. The first thing to do is to preach a new crusade of co-operation and fair dealings; after that, put these teachings into effect and create a lasting economic brotherhood.
