Title

American Association for Labor Legislation [membership solicitation card]

Description

Membership solicitation card published by the American Association for Labor Legislation. One side has an editorial cartoon by Gordon Grant, republished from Better Times, a New York welfare magazine.  It shows a family standing under an arch in which the keystone (labelled "Employment") is slipping out. If the keystone falls, the family will be crushed. 

Excerpts:

Security of Employment for the Breadwinner. The only basis of Sound Social Action. 

Help the Keystone Hold! 

Other side--
Purpose:
To improve industrial conditions that needlessly involve loss of life, health and productivity of workers; and to obtain uniform labor laws in the interest of the whole community.  

This Association is an instrument with which men and women are accomplishing, cooperatively, what they could not hope to do individually.
