ployers' opposition is not based upon
any one fundamental objeetion, but up-
a complex made up o' parts peculiar
to the individuals of the group. There
is the desire- to retain power once
possesfd, the power to dictate the
tenure of employment, of houts and
conditions of work. The arguments
employed to support this.power.remind
one of the Earl of Stafford's defense of
The absolutism of private property
is as dear to their hearts as 'the ab-
solutism of sovereignty to the Stuarts.
Then there are men in the employers
group who. have their own sclgmes and
institutions for solving the labor prob-
lem. They fear that recognition of the
employes' right to collective bargain-
ing may sweep these into. the discard.
They, are opposed to the resolution.
Finally, there is a group which feels
that the right of collective bargaining,
if conceded, would mea'n bargaining
with the officials of the American
Federation of Labor. They admit that
the employer who controls plant and
equipment sufficient to emnploy one
thousand men cannot reasonably ask
that those men come to him one by
one and arrange a contract governing
wages and conditions of labor. He
represents one thousand units of pow-
er; each laborer represents only one.
The employer should, therefore, be re-
quired, to bargain withrepresentatives
and of representation by men of their
own choosing is granted the laborers
the employer will be required to bar-
gain, not with the representatives of
his one thousand employes, but with
the officials of the A. F. of L., who
stand for many thousands. In such a
negotiatiojn there would not, be equal-
ity of power.
Feels Employers Fears Unfounded
Those representatives of the public
group who are employers feel that the
fears of the employers group are un-
founded, and they have no hesitation
in saying so. In answer to the argu-
ment that the workers may use un-
wisely the new power which they are
acquiring, they say that is the privi-I
lege of the citizens of a democracy,
whether industrial or political; that,
the day has passed when one group in
society can appoint itself the guardiai3
of another class against its own folly.
It is the attitude of the employers in'
this group of public representatives
which gives a tone of hopefulness to
The meeting together of men from
such various walks of life is bound to
result in greater respect bottomed
upon an appreciation of differences in
point of view. Whether and'resolutions
concerning collective bargaining,
agencies for conciliation, qnd kindred,
matters are passed or not, the meet-
ing together of men of such diverse
interests will help bring about a. bet-
ter understanding between these con-
