Subscription. 00 per year the picture of the year Advance or perish to i words and statements in this to praising the Effort and Progress of american labor and the a by congratulatory merits of our own. Let us think instead of our shortcomings of the things we meant to do and have not got around to. Let us think of the shops and factories in our industries we did t organize. Let us think of the millions of unorganized White Collar workers All Over the country who need a labor Union just As badly As any Man working in a factory. Are we working As hard on the problems of organizing As we did when the Cio was born or Are we thinking of that new and shining Union Headquarters building we want to put up have we made enough efforts to bring Young blood to the Union movement have we Given encouragement to the younger members in our Union to share our responsibilities so that they May take their place As leaders of tomorrow aware of the hard struggle of the past and ready to carry on an Uphill fight Are our members really with us come what May or have we a lot of just a dues paying members if we have we Are to blame because it is our fault if we have not spread the great Success Story of our Union and the Cio to every member and the Public. Have we done our Job in telling our Story to the Public so that we May get a fair hearing when the situation warrants it this must be done especially in a town As conservative As Cincinnati. Are we paying lip service to the efforts of far sighted Union men to play an important part on the political scene or Are we behind them 100%? have we ail made an Effort to acquaint ourselves with the problems facing labor on a state and National level or Are we satisfied As Long As our local has no immediate troubles Are we getting too soft or satisfied with our past performance if we Are we will have a rude Awakening before we know it. The forces against us Are forming with new strength and their efforts will never end. If we Are not going Forward we will not last. We cannot afford to Mark time. We must Advance or it Worth a Buck 14what did i get for the last Buck i gave to Pac a that a a question sometimes asked Pac solicitors. And the answer can be found by simply looking at the record of just the gains made Here in Ohio. The Ohio legislature has just gone Home. During that time it drastically liberalized the unemployment compensation and the workmen s compensation Law and provided Public housing in Ohio t name Only the three most important pro labor Bills that came up. And the legislature slapped Down every attempt to pass anti labor Laws. Isnit that a Good return on a Dollar investment and let s look at the dollars and cents Side of the legislative score. The new unemployment compensation Law Means that two million Ohio workers will be far better Able to keep their families when pay less paydays Roll around. Maximum benefits have been raised $4 a week. Dependency allowances can provide an additional $5 a week. Benefits will be paid for four extra weeks and the waiting period has been Cut in half. All of those changes in the Law mean Money in the pockets of unemployed workers and additional insurance for every worker plagued by the fear of layoffs. Isnit that a Good return on a Dollar investment take the workmen s compensation Law. The new Law the health welfare and pension Issue workers and their families live in constant fear of insecurity. Fear of unemployment illness Accident old age is always with the worker from the time he enters the labor Market until he is fired because he is too old to work. The worker knows that he personally has no real Protection against these hazards. Only his employer and the government can safeguard him old problem the fight of the unions to obtain Protection for their members against the hazards of illness Accident old age has historic roots. In the Early 19th Century organization for collective bargaining was forbidden by Law. Workers organized Mutual Aid groups to get around anti Union Laws and they became the beginnings of the american Union movement. The first organizations of workers were generally loan sick Benefit and. Burial societies. The Philadelphia typographical society organized in 1802, was incorporated in 1810 As a benevolent society. It was Only in 1833 that its a a primary and Paramount intent ion�?T11 became a the determination and support of adequate wages for journeymen the Bro. Of locomotive fire men amp engine men was formed in 1873 As a benevolent society. It was not until 12 years later that it assumed its function As a Union. The Union welfare movement received great impetus during world War ii. Following the freezing of wages by the wartime Little steel formula unions concentrated on winning fringe benefits particularly health and welfare programs financed out of the huge War profits of the corporations. Number crows by 1945 about 609,000 Union members were covered by health and welfare programs. By 1947 the number had grown to 1,200,-000. By 1948 the number of workers receiving this elementary Protection had grown to More than three million. At the present time about four million workers Are covered by some Type of health welfare and or pension plan. The growing Union welfare movement climaxed now by the demands of the major unions in Basic industries for health welfare and pension benefits represents the determination of the workers to Cope with the eve present threat of insecurity. They Are fighting to protect their families from the loss of wages and Means that maximum benefits will be increased $5 a week. It Means that total payments for temporary total disability and permanent partial disability cases have been increased. It Means larger death benefits and burial allowances. It Means compensation for those who lose their hearing in Plant accidents. And All of these changes also mean Money in the pockets of injured workers and additional insurance for every worker in Ohio shops and factories. Isnit that a Good return on a Dollar investment and then there s the Public housing Law. The new Law Means that Ohio can come out of the orphan class. Now it will join the other 47 states that permit Public housing. For the first time in Many years Federal projects can be built in our state. That Means something will be done about the horrible shortage of houses that has forced families to live in shacks and shanties in tar paper Hen coops and trailers. It will mean fewer slums fewer rats and less disease. Isnit that a Good return on a Dollar investment yes Pac Buck solicitors have a Good answer whenever they re asked a what did i get for the last Buck i gave to Pac a their answer is a brother you got More for that Buck than you did for any other Buck you Ever and you can get even More for the next Buck you give to Pac. That a the one that s going to help defeat Taft. In t that Worth a Buck the breakdown of morale due to illness and. Accident. They arc fighting for the right of workers who become too old to work the live at hum an beings. Industry sets aside huge sums to take care of the Wear and tear of machinery. The unions Are demanding that the same Protection be Given workers who Wear themselves out producing the profits for corporations. The corporations oppose these justified demands. They have suddenly become a socially conscious and insist that social insurance is the Only Way to overcome the insecurity caused by illness Accident and old age. Not enough the present social Security system is grossly inadequate. The average worker who now retires at the age of 65 receives a pension of $25 a month or $39 a month if his dependent wife is Over 65. But the social Security Board has reported that an elderly couple needs $140 a month to maintain a a a modest Standard of life. That figure is so modest that it represents Only a subsistence Standard of living. Workers faced with the Prospect of retiring with $39 a month for themselves and their dependent wives have no alternative but to fight for decent pensions to be paid out of the exorbitant profits of the corporations. Adequate social Security pensions Are essential for the welfare of the people but the Best Way to win this objective is to Force the corporations to disgorge part of their profits and pay pensions to old workers whom they now abandon As so much useless scrap.
