Your responsibilities are equally great.
The enlightened employer of 1948 appreciates his responsibilities far more than did his forebears. He knows the good old days are gone forever. Gone are the times when a man's business was his own, and the accepted philosophy that of the devil take the hindmost; gone too are the times when labor comprised the "troublesome" people who worked twelve hours for six days a week and received a minor share of your profits.
Back in the early days of the New Deal labor entered politics in full force. It joined forces with the politicians who promised the sky for the many, and it helped return those same politicians to power time and time again.
But the congressional elections of 1946 brought a day of reckoning, and the demagogs were cast aside for awhile.
