This brochure promotes a No vote on California Proposition No. 1, Prohibiting "Hot Cargo" and "Secondary Boycott," a referendum that would restrict labor rights to organize for the duration of World War II. The No Campaign was backed by 9 American Federation of Labor Labor Councils throughout the Los Angeles region. A fascinating blend of patriotism and labor militancy during the Second World War. "Nothing could be more pleasing to Hitler, Hirohito, and Mussolini than to see and know that the people of California are engaged in a dispute which promotes internal strife, division and hatred."
