Who Are strikes really against a a once again Here in Hershey we Are facing the possibility of a strike. It is disquiet fire and unpleasant to think of such things especially when we consider the. Ugly situations of but a Short time ago. Who Are strikes really against who a a wins a who a a loses lets examine a recent strike in new York City to see. Last december the truck Dri piers who deliver that great City a newspapers shut Down the nine daily papers for 17 Days. At the end of that time the striking employees went Back to work for approximately the same a a package they had been offered before the strike. But they had lost $600,000 in wages from the standpoint of this $600,000, the strike was against the strikers families. From the standpoint of the five million Dollar loss in wages to non striking newspaper employees who had to be Laid of the strike was against their fellow employees. From the standpoint of the 10,000 Newsstands that had to be shut Down the strike was against the people who sell their product. From the standpoint of the heavy loss of business by the entertainment Industry the strike was against musicians waiters actors entertainers prize fighters and stage hands. From the standpoint of the profit that would have come from the Twenty five million dollars in Christmas advertising that was never run the strike was against the owners of the newspapers and the u. S. Government which would have received 52% of the profit in taxes. Other innocent sufferers were real estate , used car salesmen waste paper dealers mail order companies and thousands of Small neighbourhood stores whose Trade is largely brought in by the Sale of newspapers. Every strike has its bad Side effects although they Are not always so obvious As they were in this Case. The same penalties to innocent bystanders Are always present. Although aimed at a capital a the owners of a company most of the Price is paid by other workers. The present economic situation Here does not appear to justify the drastic action presently being planned.
