    Quote from document: "Following statement made by Gov. Gruening interviewed Governor Gruening on cannery strike coming off tonight STOP He stated that the Cannery workers demands are justified and that they have been the lowest paid labor group in Alaska for years that now is the the time to eliminate inequalities and discriminating acts against the Alaska Cannery Workers that they have put up with it for too long STOP He stated that we can and will handle any strike situation or discrimination affecting our people I am surprised that the employers will resist such just demands this cannery work is seasonal which makes the substandard wages even lower I am flying back to Juneau this afternoon and will be on hand for any emergency or situation affecting the welfare of Alaska people. Urge you give full puplicity [sic].". less
