No Hope

In the present age there is no hope for working men outside of organization. Without a trades union, the workman meets the employer at a great disadvantage. The Capitalist has the advantage of past accumulations; the laborer, unassisted by combination, has not. Knowing this, the Capatalist can wait, while his men, without funds, have no other alternative but to submit. But with organization the case is altered; and the more widespread the organization, the better. Then the workman is able to meet the employer on equal terms... if the strong combine, why should not the weak.
