I AM writing this as one of, a
servant of, and a representative of the public.
The Taft-Hartley Act operates in the interest of the public.
Wherever and whenever therefore, the Act operates in the public interest I, as a public servant, am thereby served.
The operations of the Taft-Hartley Act during the first year of its existence have already proved the value of the new law to the general public.
It is the value of the Taft-Hartley Act to the general public which will repay me and those who worked with me for our efforts in enacting the new labor law.
While it was left to industry to point out to the Congress wherein the national labor policy under the Wagner Act was deficient and to students of government to recommend the theoretical desirability of one proposed change as against another, the Congress as a whole had but one yardstick to measure its acceptance or rejection of particular proposals.
