' a delicate question has come up In
New York eKy In regard to a strike
among the laborers engaged on new*
school buildings that are being erec
If these buildings are not quickly
finished, thousands of children In the
city will be without school facilities
The 111 on complain that the contrac
tors are not paying the union wages,
and have strurk on this account. To
avoid the union wages the contractors
are said to be employing alien labor.
This brings up an interesting ques
Union men claim that public work
should not be done by pauper labor.
In order to accomplish this, It Is ne
cessary to provide that no contract
shall be granted by city, county or
state authorities, unless it is guaran
teed by the contractors that union wa
ges shall lie |Mild.
If organised labor can get this Just
demand granted by our city govern
ments. there will then be no trouble in
maintaining the wage rate among oth
er contractors. And there 1s every
reason why the public contracts should
|?e let put at union wages. ;, , »
