Western Labor News, May 21, 1919 (Winnipeg)
Never have the workers of Winnipeg had so much confidence in their cause as today. Never has there been such unanimity as to absolute necessity of settling once [and] for all the two points at issue, namely:
1. THE RIGHT TO COLLECTIVE BARGAINING, and
2. THE RIGHT TO A LIVING WAGE.
Wages only 18 cents higher than in 1914 - Cost of living up 80 per cent - Bosses say demands of men reasonable and necessary to maintain standard of citizenship- But others must take responsibility for increase men demand.
