Govemor Mon C. Wallgren's
labor 06!. Statement: ..
Labor Day of 1518 finds the American working man
once more in a period of >challenge. By now he should be
accustomed to it, since never in the history of the nation
has a gain by labor been achieved without battle or re
tained without challenge.
This is no time for empty mouthings about honoring
Labor on its own holiday. The challenge to Labor is too
serious. and the issues too great, to permit evasion. My
mesage to the working people of the State of Washing
ton is this:
1. 1 am against the Taft-Hartley Law. It should be
repealed
‘l I beiieve firmly in the right of working people to a
decent living}. at wages sufficient to enable them to own
their homes. to fx‘l‘fe for emergencies. to educate their
children. to be same in their jobs: and to set aside funds
for their old age.
There is no possible compromise on this program for
working men and women. Either you're for it—or against
it- And, your actions tell which you are. ‘
The Democrats enacted the Wagner Act—Labor's “Bill
of Rights." The Republicans ripped it to pieces by pass
ing the Taft-Hartley Law. and now are threatening to go
even further.
.\'o clearer picture can be drawn of the intents and pur
poses of the two major parties toward Labor. The com
parison speaks for itself.
The same applies to prices. housing. education and health
services—to all the elements which go to make up a de
cent lin'ng and security for millions of American workers.
To Labor's demands for action, the Republicans' reply has
been a slap in the face.
The elections this Fall are bargaining-representation
elections for all the American people. It is the voter’s
chance to choose betweeh the company representatives
and men with good labor record.
But the important thing is to REGISTER and VOTE.
This is a battle for survival. and those who stay home
from the polls are simply asking to be deprived of their
hard-won freedom to organize, to bargain collectively and
to seek better and higher standards of living.
