Transcript WHAT PART DOES THE WORKER GET? Wage Worker's Share 51.17 Per Cent Capitalists Share 48.83 Per Cent Several careful studies have been made of the various United States census reports in an endeavor to compute the share which labor receives of the wealth which it produces. One of these studies was made by the compilers of the National Socialist Campaign Book of 1914, and the conclusions there presented have been corroborated by studies of the same figures made by W. J. Ghent, the compiler of the 1915 Appeal to Reason Almanac and Arsenal of Facts.
