Social Aspects of Industry: A Survey of Labor Problems and Causes of Industrial Unrest

By S. Howard Patterson | Go to book overview
The removal of economic maladjustments requires not only labor legislation, but also the existence of various administrative boards of experts for the compilation of statistics, the drafting and enforcing of labor laws, and the adjustment of industrial disputes. As governmental regulation of industry has developed, fact finding in labor problems has become increasingly important. Administration as well as legislation is imperative, and the work of the regular inspector or the special investigator is as necessary as that of the courts.There are many private organizations or semi-public agencies which are of special interest to the student of labor problems. Among them are the Consumers' League and the American Association for Labor Legislation. To students of the social aspects of industry the organized charity societies and legal aid societies represent important new developments. The work of many such private organizations is important in itself. Again, many of them represent newly developing aspects of government. Many of the present social and economic functions of government were performed by private agencies before they were taken over as public duties.
