    This flier, which was issued by the Seattle Central Labor Council in 1956, urges the recipient to vote against the proposed Washington state initiative 198. The initiative is described as a "dangerous, compulsory law that threatens to destroy your freedoms". The leaflet details the freedoms that the current labor environment has secured for workers, and then lists the damages that will be experienced by every citizen in the state if the initiative is passed. The back of the flier identifies major politicians of both parties, from both the state and national level, who oppose the measure, and asks voters to learn more about the organizations behind 198 -- specifically, the National Association of Manufacturers and the Industrial Conference Board. In several places throughout, it repeats the same slogan: "Labor is thy neighbor -- Vote against 198.". less
