Ow Country Right or Wrong
MUST GREED PREVAIL?
All during the war indus-trial workers have
been drawing high wages-for most of them
higher than they had ever drawn before in
their lives. Yet today, under the urging of
CIO leaders (who get their cut of the union
.dues) these same workers are demanding a
30 per cent increase in wages.
With the war ended and millions of work-
ers being laid off, it seems to us that wages
should take a drop, with a consequent drop in
the cost of living. But apparently these union
workers not only want to retain their-,war-
boosted wages but figure on increasing them.
Union leaders have informed their locals
that they are free to strike at any time. The
skilled craft unions are already preparing to
refuse new members, believing that they can
maintain prosperity for a few by keeping sup-
ply below demand in closed shops.
We're going to have thousands of men re-
turning from the various theaters of war and
personally the editor of The Star thinks that
this is' one heluva way to receive them. They
are entitled to their old jobs or the first pick
of any new jobs that may be open which they
are capable of filling, whether or not they be-
longed to any union when they entered the
service or not. They risked their lives while
the present strikers stayed at home and drew
down fat wages. Personally, we believe the
best Aay to settle this present strike situa-
tion is to tell the strikers to go plumb to and
stay put, and fill their positions with capable
men being discharged from the armed forces.
Unions seem to have forgotten that there
is a Constitution of the United States, under
which men were guaranteed the right to life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness-which
means the right to Iwork.' Say we: Let the.
strikers keep right on striking and fill their
positions with capable men returning home
from the wars, for what have our soldiers
been. fighting for if'when they return to their
homes they cannot work without paying for
the privilege? '
