About this Item

Printed wraps. Pagination runs 255-280. A lecture by George Gunton considering arguments against trade unions, both in the United States and England, mostly the argument by Benjamin Taylor (in an issue of the North American Review) against unions. Gunton cites higher wages and more consumption due to higher wages, as one of the benefits of unions in the United States, and highlights the importance unions in creating fair work weeks, reducing child labor, increasing education, etc., although not citing specific examples. Alluding to the 'present strike' which does not appear mentioned, Gunton discusses the media's poor portrayal of unions, and also argues for intelligent leadership instead of the use of strikes (force) by unions to achieve their goals. George Gunton founded the Institute of Social Economics, through which he and others conducted research on labor and capital. He was an advocate of trusts, asserting that the larger companies were more favorable toward unions, due to having more to lose. FAIR condition, EX-LIBRARY. Stamping and call numbers present on the front wrap. Front and rear wrap DETACHED, with heavy chipping and tearing along the binding edge. Three holes punched along the spine, most likely from being bound in a larger work. Some wrinkling/creasing to the pamphlet. Minor soiling. A few stray pencil lines to the margins and text.
