The article presents information on political conditions of the U.S. The political angle in the labor news is highly significant. For three years before his death Senator Taft worked hard to detach the building trades workers--who, with the teamsters, are the backbone of the AFL--from reliance on the Democrats. The gimmick: an amendment to the Taft-Hartley law letting the construction unions have a union shop in seven days instead of the current 30 days. The amendment is still pending, and it will be part of the eventual "Administration" program on the T-H law.
