Through the present lease system in the state, a majority of our members have been able to procure for themselves odd jobs on the farms after their return from a short fishing and canning season in the Alaskan canneries in summer, and which conditions will be entirely upset by the measure if it becomes a law, and thus will increase the army of the unemployed. ... Be it resolved, therefore: that the Cannery Workers' and Farm Laborers' Union. Local 18257, chartered under the American Federation of Labor ... and representing a substantial number of Filipinos, a great number of Japanese, Chinese, Americans, Negroes, Hawaiians and American Indians, ask the Governor of the State of Washington to to veto House Bill No. 663. less
