ABSTRACT
The article presents a report on American labor union corruption and mismanagement of welfare funds. The "Baltimore Sun's" recent editorial in its September 26 issue was typical of recent attacks. Capitalizing on acknowledged instances of union dishonesty, the editorial censured young people for their apathy to labor monopolies and to a new race of robber barons who plunder the welfare funds of workingmen. The editorial found it "puzzling" that the young men and women of today "seem to be oblivious of or indifferent to the new monopoly and the new tyranny right under their noses."
