WHAT IS THE LABOR QUESTION?
The money question is also the
labor qnestion. Any considerable
change in tho volume and consequent
value of money at once affects tho
prices of all forms of property, and
this affects labor that produces prop,
erty. If money is raised in valae, or
appreciated to the gold standard,
prices on all tho prod acts of labor
mnst come down in tho'snmo propor
tion. Falling pricea'destroy profits.
and withont profits labor cannot be
em ployed. Banning this downward
circle further, we 6eo that labor un
employed cannot purchnse good;,
however cheap; so unemployed labor
and falling prices go side by side on
a downward road to rnin, andtbis is
brought about by decreasing or
boarding or otherwise catting off the
volume of circulating money. The
remedy is to increase instead of de
crease the yolnme of money.
The money qnestion is the property
and labor question. Proporty values
and prices rest on money. Profits
and enterprises rest on money. Em
ployment of laborers rest on money
money on one side, property and
labor on tbe other. As one end of
the lever goes np the other comes
down. Let property aud labor be
heard in financial legislation. Prop
erty and labor have too long been
silent on the money question. This
qnestion is the greatest of all Iegis-
lahve questions, however much the
upholders of our present system may
seek to belittle discussion and inves
tigation, and cast ridicule and epi
thets on those who would improve
the system. All sj stems of robbery
have expected their advocates to cry
out against refrom, and say, "let us
alone, let us alone," or if any change
is desired, leave it to us. to make the
The question now arises, What
shall be the money of our people T
Shall tbe domination of gold, which
is bat another term for the domina
tion of the holders of gold, be con
tinued to the detriment of public and
private interests? Lego.
