Transcript These investigations have shown that under the best possible conditions, and granting the most excellent motives on the part of employers, freedom does not exist either politically, industrially or socially, and that the fiber of manhood will inevitably be destroyed by the continuance of the existing conditions. Investigations have proved that although the physical and material conditions may be unusually good, as for example, in Lead, S. Dakota, they are the price paid for the absolute submission of the employees to the will of employing corporation. Such conditions are, moreover, shown by the hearings of the Commission and by the investigations of its staff to be unusual. Los Angeles, for example, although exceptionally endowed in location, climate and natural resources, was sharply criticised for labor conditions which had developed during its "Open Shop" regime, even by Mr. Walter Drew, representing several of the largest associations which contend for the "open shop." It is significant that the only claim ordinarily made for the conditions in such establishments or localities is that "they are as good as are secured by the Union." As a matter of fact, there are few establishments which make this boast, and in the majority the conditions were found to be far below any acceptable standard.—87, M. Concentration of Wealth and Influence A careful and conservative study shows that the corporations controlled by six financial groups and affiliated interests employ 2,651,684 wage earners and have a total capitalization of $19,875,200,000. These six financial groups control 28 per cent of the total number of wage earners engaged in the industries covered by the report of our investigations. The Morgan First National Bank group alone controls corporations employing 785,499 wage earners.— 117, M. 33
