Transcript That's why Labor now faces injunctions, anti-picketing and anti-boycott laws. That's why it must face damage suits, fellow servant clauses, assumed risks, and all the other legal devices which now allow the employers to rob the workers of limbs, of health, and of life, without compensation. That's why the workers now see their country and cities ruled and robbed by public service corporations, by monopolies and by trusts. That's why the workers must watch helplessly their country being robbed of its resources to build up the power of those who oppress Labor. UNTIL THE WORKERS build up their own political union the great political parties, often controlled by crooks and grafters, will sell themselves to those who can pay the price they demand. Before the vast political power which they swing the workers are today helpless. It is only common sense, therefore, that as you strike together and buy together so you must vote together. Need this be said again and again? Need we shout it from the housetops and plead even with labor leaders to believe it? Why, the thing is as simple as the nose on your face. It is a lesson that has been learned by all the workers in the world. The Germans, with their millions of political unionists, the English, the Belgians, the French, the Italians, the Austrians and the Finns, all know that they must vote as a unit. At least eleven millions of men in the world today have now learned the power of this new unity. Beware, therefore, of that man who says that you need ONLY have unity in the shop. Beware of that man who says that you need ONLY have unity as buyers. Beware of that man who says that you need ONLY have unity at the polls. 43
