New Republic;5/19/52, Vol. 126 Issue 20, p3
The article reports on certain socio-political developments in the U.S. The Congress isn't going to pass the viciously anti-union Smith bill at this session, just before the election. The lengths to which these anti-union bills go and still get serious consideration in a responsible agency like the House Armed Services Committee is terrifying. The Western Union (WU) telegraph company which is a private monopoly is being condemned even by conservative newspapers at the present time for refusing to bargain with striking employees. What WU is really contending now, is not that the workers' demands are unreasonable but that it can't pay a fair wage without going into receivership.
