LABOR . . . comes to power
Ever since I began to be Inter
ested in politics, something called
the "Labor vote" came into every
pre-election discussion. Until late
ly it was merely a vague phrase.
Labor was not organized politic
ally. Members of labor unions
voted as they pleased and not on
orders from their leaders.
The only serious attempt in
America to organize Labor as a
political unit was the Knights of
Labor, predecessor of the Ameri
can Federation of Labor, m the
1880's, under the leadership of T.
V. Powderly, it seemed to make
progress for a while, but it was
impossible to line up any consid
erable number of workers to agree
to vote the same way.
The American Federation -of
Labor was founded on a non-po
litical basis. No member was ask
ed what his party allegiance was,
nor could any of the unions or
the Federation itself be voted as a
unit. It put no "Labor"* tickets
in the field; but its members nom
inally supported candidates
friendly to the wage-earners.
Now the political aspect of Labor
is changing. With the organiza
tion of the C. I. O. the American
Labor Party is the political arm
of new style labor unions. It is
already a factor for politicians to
POWER .... to be reckoned
Organized Labor tested its po
litical power in several local and
municipal elections this month.
The American Labor Party in
New York City, proved itself, to
hold the balance of power. It did
not run its own candidate but in
dorsed the Republican candidate,
Mayor F. H. LaGuardia, and
elected him. Polling nearly half a
million votes, the Labor Party
could have elected the Democratic
In Detroit, where the C. I. O.
ran its own third ticket on a
platform calling for complete ac

to coptrol work and wages in in
dustry, Labor was badly defeat
ed, though it cast more than 140,-
Those results were to be ex
pected. Voters as a whole are not
ready to turn over their munici
pal governments to out-and-out
labor leaders. Political Labor's
tactics, to be successful, will have
to follow the line adopted in New
York, at least for a time. But by
demonstrating ability to muster a
block of votes large enough to de
cide an election, Labor has in
creased its power to make poli
ticians listen to its demands.
class vs. mass
The sudden rise of Lftbor to po
litical power is due to the success
of John L. Lewis in organizing
unskilled workers and working
groups previously unorganized on
the "One Big Union" plan. The
Federation of Labor is composed
of craft unions, enlisting the
skilled workers In distinct trades.
The C. I. O. plan takes Into one
union everybody who works at any
trade or no trade at all in a giv
en industry. The same idea was
back of the "Wobblies," or In
dustrial Workers of the World,
the labor movement which was
making great headway before the
Under the Federation plan la
bor unions are a sort of aristoc
racy of skilled workers. Under the
C. I. O. plan the unskilled . rank
and file are brought into frater
nity with the most highly paid.
The two organizations are bit
terly fighting each other. I have
no idea which will win or whether
toth can survive.
I am quite certain, however,
that unless the Federation itself
goes into politics, the C. I. O.

DANGER . from Irresponsibility
The danger which many fear
From the sudden political rise of
Organized Labor is that there is
ao assurance that the rights and
liberties of other than union
members will be respected or pro
tected. once Labor is in the sad
dle. I personally know many lead
ers in finance, business and in
dustry, but I do not know one now
living who can be honestly called
an enemy of Labor.
All recognize the right of work
ers to organize, to strike for high
er pay or better working condi
tions, and to receive as high a
proportion of the earnings of the
concern they work for as the bus
iness will stand. But many recent
activities of Organized Labor have
savored so strongly of lawless dis
regard of the rights of everybody
else and readiness to resort to
violence to gain their ends, that
the feeling is growing among
thoughtful Americans that it is
time for Labor organizations to
assume responsibility which they
now refuse to accept.
RULES . . • should be equal
In all other business affairs ex
cept the relations between organ
ized workers and employers there
is equal responsibility on both
sides. If either party fails to car
ry out his part of a contract,
there are well-established laws
and practices to compel him to
live up to his agreement or to pay
a penalty. If an individual by his
actions causes damage or loss to
another's property or business he
can be punished or made to pay
for the damage done.
No such rules apply when one
of the parties is a Labor organi
zation. The employer, whether an
individual or a corporation, can
be held to his agreement. There
is no redress if a union violates
If Labor is to become a domi
nant force in politics it ought to
be willing to stand on an even
footing with everyone else, in
stead of claiming special privi
leges denied to others. Whenever
Organized Labor accepts the
same measure of responsibility
which corporations and individ
uals are compelled to accept, most
of the apprehension about Labor
in politics will fade away, and
with it will vanish most of Labor's
