Transcript Poverty Produces Crime Unsanitary housing and working conditions, unemployment, wages inadequate to maintain a human standard of living, inevitably produce the crushed or distorted bodies and minds from which the army of crime is recruited.—Page 13, M. Earnings of the Toilers Between one-fourth and one-third of the workers eighteen years of age and over, in factories and mines, earn less than $10 per week; from two-thirds to three-fourths earn less than $15, and only about one-tenth earn more than $20 a week. This does not take into consideration lost Working time for any cause. From two-thirds to three-fourths of the women workers in factories, stores and laundries, and in industiial occupations generally, work at wages of less than $8 per week. Approximately one-fifth earn less than $4 and nearly one-half earn less than $6 per week. —Page 25, M. The Family Wage All experience has shown that at the end the father's wages are reduced by about the amount that the children earn. This is the so-called "family wage."—Page 25, M. Workers' Share The crux of the question is: Have the workers received a fair share of the enormous increase in wealth which has taken place in this country as a result largely of their labors? The answer is emphatically—No!—Page 8, M. INDUSTRIAL DEMOCRACY THE ONLY HOPE "The only hope for the solution of the tremendous problems created by industrial relationship lies in the effective use of our democratic institutions and in the rapid extension of the principles of democracy to industry. Political freedom can exist only where there is industrial freedom; political democracy only where there is industrial democracy."— Report of the Commission on Industrial Relations. PLIGHT OF THE BREAD WINNERS "American society was founded and for a long time existed upon the theory that the family should derive its support from the earnings of the father. Now, investigation shows that 79 per cent of the fathers of wage-earning families earn less than $700 per year. Therefore, less than one-fourth of these fathers could have supported their families on the barest subsistence level without the earnings of other members of the family."—Report of the Com. on Industrial Relations. 35
