Original Texan "big-business" brochure in support of the 1947 Taft-Hartley Law (Act). The Taft-Hartley Law succeeded in limiting the power of the worker via Unions and strikes in a post WWII America. With nearly 5 million Americans back in the work force after the war, business jumped at the chance to leverage their newfound power to bring about some legal limitations on workers' rights and the power of Unions in the American work force.
This brochure lays out 16 of the "Rights" of a worker that the Taft-Hartley Law supports. Toning and slight wear at edges. A rare ephemeral specimen from one of the most important labor laws of the 20th Century.
