Labor Unions - A Vintage Catholic Comic Explains

I love finding old, weird comics like "Treasure Chest of Fun and Fact," a comic put out by the Catholic church in the 1940's-50's. 'Treasure Chest' was supposed to satisfy kids' appetite for comics while delivering stories that the church deemed appropriate. This issue features a piece about labor unions. The cover art is by Lloyd Ostendorp. I also included a page excerpt. It's pretty interesting - and fitting for Labor Day!

Fascinating! It would have been nice if they had had the option of using contraceptives; maybe they would not have liked to have had four little mouths to feed. How's the pope on that question?
